    400BC-parts of the body excrete an essence into sex cell causing inheritable traits. Aristotle disagreed based on amputees etc. Darwin agreed with this, but used fancy words (gemules).

    1 chromosome type in gamete
  42. Homolog
    a member of a pair of chromosomes

    essentially a miotic division
  55. Mendel’s 1st Law
    Law of Segregation-each trait is controlled by particulate factors that occur in pairs. During gamete formation the members of a pair segregate from one another so that each gamete receives only one. Double number is restored upon fertilization.

    in anaphase one homologs go to same pole either because they fail to become associated with one another or the bivalent gets tangled
  65. P Value
    probability of obtaining data that fit model as badly as those obtained or even worse
  66. Pachytene
