Chromosome behaviour

Post by Boomting » Tue Jun 01, 2010 2:31 pm

Hi everyone :)

Sorry for all these questions I'm coming to the end of my course so I'm trying to get everything done :)

I'm just a bit confused on this :
Explain how chromosome behaviour during meiosis leads to variation. In your account refer to chiasmata formation and independent assortment.

I'm not sure whether it's asking me to just explain what the chromosomes do at each stage of meiosis or something else?

Sorry and thank you all :)

He asks you to explain what during meiosis can increase the diversity of chromosomes at genetic levels.

I think they are quite specific about what they want to hear ;)

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
