    Questions: 1. According to the pedigree, is cystic fibrosis inherited as a dominant or as a recessive trait? Explain how you made your conclusion using evidence from the pedigree and the principles of genetics. Cystic fibrosis is a recessive trait. If you have one CF gene and one non-CF gene, you will be a carrier but not have CF. I referred back to Mendel mentioning that the trait may not show up in somebody but it can still be passed on to the next generation. He also states that the inheritance...

    Cystic fibrosis is when thick mucus is produced due to a hereditary genetic disorder; the mucus produced is so thick that it clogs the body’s tubes and passageways. Cystic fibrosis is caused by the mutation in a gene known as the CFTR gene; this fault in the gene causes the normal workings of a protein to be blocked allowing too much salt and not enough water into cells. These result in the build-up of thick mucus in the body’s tubes and passageways blocking them, these blockages damage the lungs...

    Introduction: Cystic fibrosis (CF) also known as mucoviscidosis is an inherited disease that causes the body to produce mucus that's extremely thick and sticky. The mucus in people with CF is thicker than normal because CF affects cells in the epithelium, the layer of cells that lines the passages in the body's organs. In a person who does not have CF, the epithelial cells produce a thin, watery mucus that acts like a lubricant and helps protect the body's tissues. In a person with CF, however...
