Meiosis vs. Mitosis…which is which again? Part 1

I remember when I first learned about Mitosis in biology,I was like “oh ok that makes sense” and then I learned about Meiosis and my immediate reaction was… “didn’t we just learn about this”? It definitely does not help that they both start with “M’s”, I would continuously get them confused and was not really…

Dihybrid Crosses

Dihybrid crosses. Total nightmares, right? AaBb x AAbb, etc. All too often your teachers will show you a giant 4×4 gamete Punnett to find the answer. They’ll tell you that there are too many alleles for a simple Punnett square. But that isn’t true. As a matter of fact, you can use the little squares…

Blood Types

Blood types are one of the most interesting and applicable examples of genetic inheritance. However, they can be a bit tricky to wrap your head around. This problem challenges you to apply a basic understanding of blood type genetics to a real-life problem (which is something that teachers love to do on tests!)

Difference Between Osmosis And Diffusion

This problem discusses the main differences between osmosis and diffusion, as they are both passive transport mechanisms but differ in terms of how these processes occur.

Genetics: Inheritance

Mendel formulated a theory of inheritance based on experiments with garden peas, proposing that parents pass on to their offspring discrete genes that retain their identity through generations. The fundamental principles of inheritance are called the law of segregation and the law of independent assortment.
