Abstract

Introduction

This lesson was designed for individuals who have some knowledge of science but do not have formal training in genetics. However, cytoplasmic inheritance is not as well known as nuclear genetics, so this material may be interesting to the professional who wants to know more about this esoteric subject.

After this lesson you will be able to:

  • Define cytoplasmic inheritance and identify controlling variables
  • Define nuclear inheritance
  • Identify cell organelles
  • Recognize ways to identify cytoplasmic inheritance through breeding
