Mendclian law of inheritance
Linkage and interaction of genes.
Multiple alleles and isoalleses.
Linkage and crossing-over mapping of genes.
Sex determination in plants and animals: Sex-linkage, nondisjunction as a proof of chromosomal theory of inheritance.
Basic microbialgenetics: Conjugation, transformation, transduction and there use in genetic mapping.
Concept of gene: Classical and modern gene concepts, Psedoallelism, position effect, imragenic crossing over and complemention (cistron, recom and muton), benzer’s work on rll locus in T4 phage.
Mutations-spontaneous and induced: chemical and physical mutagens, induced mutations in plants, animals and microbes for economic benefit of man.
Structural and numerical aberrations involving chromosomes: evolution of wheat, cotton and rice, hereditary defeets-Kleinefelter, Turner, Cri-du-Chat and Down syndromes.
Extrachromosomal inheritance: cytoplasmic inheritance, mitochondrial and; chloroplast genetic systems (Differences between them and general concept).
Population genetics: Hardy – Weinburg equilibrium, gene and genotypic frequencies.
