Acid Maltase Deficiency: It is an autosomal recessive disorder, in which the defect is in the gene for the acid maltase enzyme, which leads to accumulation of glycogen stored in muscles. Glycogen build up, weakens the muscles of a patient suffering from this disorder. This may affect respiratory mus...
A particularly important category of genetic linkage has to do with the X and Y sex chromosomes. These not only carry the genes that determine male and female traits but also those for some other characteristics as well. Genes that are carried by either sex chromosome are said to be sex linked.
Sex linked genetic disorders
Fragile x syndrome
Sex-linked traits are genetic characteristics determined by genes located on sex chromosomes.
Genes are pieces of DNA on chromosomes that carry information that are responsible for inheriting traits. Different forms of the same gene are...
Drosophila melanogaster - Sex linkage and inheritance of genes through cross breeding
This experiment looks at the relationship between genes, generations of a population and if genes are carried from one generation to another. By studying Drosophila melanogaster, starting with a parent...

Overview: Hereditary Similarity and Variation
Living organisms are distinguished by their ability to reproduce their own kind.
Offspring resemble their parents more than they do less closely related individuals of the same...
TETRA TRAITS FOR EFFICIENT HUMAN RECOGNITION
This paper proposes the multimodal biometrics system for identity verification using four traits i.e., face, fingerprint, iris and signature. The proposed system is designed for applications where the training...
THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND
Personality refers to the total person. It is the expression of what you are and what you do. The core of each individual is the product of all responses that are expressed in everyday living. It includes the things that you say as well...

Animal Development and Heritable Traits Lab Report
Drosophila, or the fruit fly, is an ideal organism for many laboratory studies. It can easily be observed in a confined space and two flies can reproduce hundreds of offspring. The most important thing about studying fruit flies, how...
In biology, sex is a process of combining and mixing genetic traits, often resulting in the specialization of organisms into male and female reproductive roles. Sexual reproduction involves combining specialized cells (called gametes) to form offspring that inherit traits from both parents. Gametes...
"I Do" or "Please Don't": Hawaii's Same Sex Marriages
With the recent decision by the Hawaii courts regarding the legalization
of marriage between same-sex couples, a political debate across the United
States has begun. Many people believe that this is a monstrous step to
legalizing same-sex uni...
Eugenics is concerned with the current direction of human evolution. Troy Duster (1990) in his book "Backdoor to Eugenics" defines eugenics as "the organic betterment of the race through wise application of the laws of heredity." The word Eugenics was first put to use in 1883 by Francis Galton in hi...
Sex in the media
It is about time people all around the world realize the effect television has on children and their behavior. The media has been using sex and violence to sell their product and services without people even being aware of it. The sexual language and content is right in fron...
Haemophilia is a (sex) X linked recessive disease. This means the disease is spread via the X chromosome.
Males having one X chromosome and one Y chromosome are more likely to get haemophilia. An overall probability generalisation for a male to get haemophilia is 50%, it would be that they eith...
The conventionally accepted roles of both males and females in ancient Grecian society were well defined and manifested. Women were considered the weaker of the sexes and, thus, were expected to remain in the home and perform their domestic duties, while the men were to be rulers and bread...
Eukaryotic cells reproduce sexually, involving the fusion of two gametes. Each gamete contains one set of chromosomes and is called haploid where as the zygote formed when two gametes combine is known as a zygote and is diploid (contains 2 sets of chromosomes). Today's gene pool consists of genes th...
