Compare and contrast the fundamental features of mitosis and meiosis with emphasis on the movement of homologous chromosomes during these cellular reproductive processes [BIOL 1010] [BIOL 1030] Define Mendelâ€™s two laws of heredity that explain the transmission of traits from one generation to the next [BIOL 1010] [BIOL 1030] Recall basic mathematical concepts and techniques: logarithms, exponentials, solving simple algebraic equations, slopes and intercepts, graphing and interpreting simple graphs

Apply the breeders equation in its simple form to any set of observations (i.e. calculate any of the values if given the other values). [BIOL 3044] Define inbreeding and inbreeding depression [BIOL 3042] Define supportive breeding and domestication selection and understand the potential consequences of supportive breeding for the maintenance of genetic diversity [BIOL 3042] Describe the extension of the breeder's equation to multiple correlated characters. [BIOL 3044] Infer (calculate) genetic variance components for continuous traits from any of the major methods used to infer them (One way ANOVA, covariance among relatives, realized heritability) [BIOL 3044]
