Why can people look like their parents/siblings but not identical to them?
Chromosomes in a pair carry same genes in the same place but are different versions of genes (alleles). Individuals have two alleles for each gene (either ****/hetero). During SR, genes from both parents come together and produce variation in offspr-
1 of 10
Compare natural selection and selective breeding?
Similarities; ways of breeding animals/plants - produce changes in characteristics - rely on variation in individuals - select most favourable characteristics1 - 1 are passed onto offspring. Differences; NS occurs naturally & SB controlled by humans
2 of 10
What do parents need to consider before deciding whether to have a test for their baby?
Risk of miscarriage. Risk of infection. harmful towards fetus. Debating to terminate/abort. Test is not 100% accurate.

What are clones?
an organism or cell, or group of organisms or cells, produced asexually from one ancestor or stock, to which they are genetically identical.
4 of 10
How are clones created in animals?
Twin fertilised zygote separates, both halves develop into an individual (naturally).

Human activity can have an unintended impact direct impact on the environment. How?
Deforestation causes habitat destruction & burning fossil fuels leads to global warming
6 of 10
Explain how evolution produce new species?
Genetic variation; where each population has a wide range of alleles that control their characteristics - Natural selection; where the alleles which help an organism to survive are selected in each population -Speciation; where the populations become
7 of 10
Explain how clothes occur both naturally and artificially?
N - twins; when a fertilised egg cell split A - when the nucleus from a body cell is transferred to an empty egg cell, artificial splitting of embryos
8 of 10
Describe the different types of stem cells?
Unspecialised and Embryonic can develop into many types of cell - Adult cannot develop into all types - Specialisation occurs at an early stage

How can stem cells treat diseases?
Be given to may be replace damaged tissue
