Study Notes

Genetics

  • Genetics is the branch of science that deals with the study of heredity and the variation of inherited traits in organisms.
  • It examines how traits are passed down from one generation to the next, and how these traits influence the characteristics of an organism.
  • Inheritance patterns describe how traits are passed down from parents to their offspring.
  • Dominance is a fundamental principle in genetics, where one allele of a gene is dominant and the other is recessive.
  • If an individual inherits one copy of the dominant allele, they will express the trait associated with that allele.
  • If they inherit two copies of the recessive allele, they will not express the trait.

Chromosomes and DNA

  • Chromosomes are the thread-like structures found within the nucleus of cells that contain the genetic material.
  • In humans, each cell contains 23 pairs of chromosomes, for a total of 46 chromosomes.
  • Chromosomes are made up of DNA, a molecule that contains the genetic instructions for the development and function of an organism.
  • DNA is a double-stranded molecule shaped like a twisted ladder, known as a double helix.
  • It is composed of two strands of sugar-phosphate backbone, with the rungs of the ladder made up of nucleotides, which are the building blocks of DNA.
  • A gene is a segment of DNA that contains the instructions for the production of a specific protein or RNA molecule.

Evolution and Genetics

  • Genetic variation is the foundation of evolution, as it provides the raw material for natural selection to act upon.
  • Over time, favorable traits become more common within a population, while unfavorable traits become less common.
  • This process, known as natural selection, leads to the development of new species and the adaptation of existing species to their environments.

Industrialization

  • The Industrial Revolution in the United States began in the late 18th century and continued into the 19th century.
  • It marked a significant shift from an agrarian economy to an industrial economy, leading to the rise of factories and urbanization.

20th Century

  • The Great Depression: This period of economic hardship, lasting from 1929 to 1939, saw widespread unemployment and poverty.
  • Cold War Era: The period from the end of World War II in 1945 to the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 was characterized by the political and military tension between the United States and the Soviet Union.

    • Manifest Destiny: This concept, which guided American expansion from the late 18th to the 19th century, played a significant role in shaping the country's territorial boundaries.
  • 19th Century:
    • The Civil War: This devastating conflict lasted from 1861 to 1865, primarily focusing on the issue of slavery.
