Welcome to Genetics.
As you may have ascertained, I am extremely interested in genetics, particularly human genetics. This page is just an extension of that hunger for knowledge. Enjoy!
Genetics for Beginners
Alright, I realize some of you are thinking, "Oh, genetics...uh, they cloned a sheep. I got my brown hair from my dad and my blue eyes from my mom," and that may be the extent of your knowledge. That's perfectly okay....for right now. This page is meant to both teach and entertain, so I won't go into great scientific detail. Also, throughout the pages, you'll see these lightbulb symbols: . When you see one of those, it means that there is a link there to go to another page about genetics, which probably explains something clearer than I did. If you're just looking for a little help on a particular area of genetics, feel free to make use of my table of contents.
| Introduction to Mendel | | Monohybrid Cross | | Dihybrid Cross | | Punnett Squares |
| Mendel's Conclusions |
University of Arizona's Biology department
This link is excellent for genetics, it even includes a tutoral on genetics and shows how to work Punnett squares.
Online Genetics Paper
This link is good for people who want to know the biological processes involved in reproduction, including transcription, crossover, and about the Human Genome Project
Dr. Bruce Gillingham's BIO 102 Page
This guy is my BIO 102 professor. He's got some good biology links, whether you're looking for genetics, Darwin, or zoology. Just don't mention the Redskins record last year.
The Center for Disease Control's Office of Genetics
Don't get me started on this one. Reading about the CDC is part of the reason I'm such a genetics/immunology nut. One day I might be protecting your children from an epidemic. Good stuff here.
Human Cloning- Supermodels, sheep, etc.
This link is for all of you pondering the ramifications of cloning.
Human Cloning: Science, Ethics, and Public Policy
Another cloning link from the U of SF.
