Discussion Board 2: Genetics/Evolution
For each board, please choose one question to complete the main post. The main post must be AT LEAST 300 words. The post must be related to one of the topics presented by your instruction found below.
Please make sure that all of the information that you use to complete your post is from your textbook. If you choose to use sources outside your book you are required to cite and reference in APA format.
Discussion topics can be updated periodically.
1. There were several pre-Darwin explanations of evolution. Choose one from your book and compare them to the accepted Darwin theory of Natural selection.
2. Choose any genetic disorder from your book. Discuss the cause (ex: insertion, deletion, inversion, translocation or whole chromosome issue), signs, symptoms and degrees of the disease.
3. Choose a trait that goes beyond Mendel’s one trait inheritance. Discuss the inheritance (ex. Incomplete dominance, multiple allele, polygenic, pleiotrophy, linkage, environmental influences), the different phenotypes or anything else that deviates from simple genetics.
