|Diagram||This figure from the article Chromosome aberration depicts seven different aberrations, both before and after, and the meiotic process that resulted in each.
Suggested use: Support an introduction of the types of chromosome aberrations.
|Diagram||This figure from the Mosaicism article illustrates the development of chromosomal mosaicism during mitosis.
Suggested use: Assign to illustrate nondisjunction during mitosis leading to mosaicism.
|Biography||This biography of Murray Barr describes his work researching chromosome defects, particularly related to sex chromosomes.
Suggested use: Assign to learn the story of the Barr body discovery and the contributions of Murray Barr to genetic sciences.
|Diagram||This figure from the article on mutations shows different mutations that can occur during DNA replication.
Suggested use: Have students compare and contrast four types of chromosomal mutations: deletion, duplication, inversion, and translocation.
|Biography||This biography describes Hugo de Vries's work on mutations, a rediscovery and extension of the work of Gregor Mendel.
Suggested use: Assign to learn about the botanist and geneticist Hugo de Vries's discoveries on hereditary and his Mutation Theory.
|Chart||This flowchart from the article entitled The role of metal ions in DNA damage summarizes a common mechanism of mutagenesis.
Suggested use: Refer to this flowchart to explain the role of metal ions in creating reactive oxygen species that can cause DNA damage and the preventative role of antioxidants.
