Unit 7: Mode of Inheritance, Biotechnology

Edmund Beecher Wilson was born in 1856, and died in 1939. He is known for his studies in embryology (the science dealing with the formation, development, structure, and functional activities of embryos), and cytology. In 1885, he became a professor of biological sciences at Bryn Mawr, then became an expert in cytology. He tranferred to Columbia University in 1891, where he became the head of zoology. In 1898, Wilson gave a famous lecture about cell lineage. The lecture revealed the discovery that certain insects shared the same groups of cells, leading Wilson to believe that they also shared ancestry. In addition to the insect discoveries, Wilson published books about cellular structure and general biology. Herman Muller, one of Wilson's students, described him as a kind, careful man who was aware that ideas were only useful when it was communicated properly.

Mode of InheritanceA mode of inheritance is when a distinct trait or disorder is passed from one generation to the next. There are many different types of modes of inheritance. Autosomal Dominant Disorders occur when a mutation is existent in one copy of a gene that is carried on an autosome (any chromosome other than a sex chromosome.) Autosomal Recessive Disorders happen when two mutations are required to cause disease. A hybrid consisting of genes for two unlike structures of a characteristic, carry one copy of the mutated gene and are considered carriers. X-linked Recessive Disorders occur when a mutation happens in a gene on the X chromosome. An individual mutation is most likely to cause disease in a male. This is important to our everyday life because any of these could develop in anyone. It all just depends on your family ancestry.
