1) Two purple sea slugs are mated with each other. Among their numerous offspring, 428 have a purple integument and 152 have orange integuments. With a chi-square test, compare the observed numbers with a 3:1 ratio and determine if the difference between observed and expected could be a result of chance.
2) Explain why tortoiseshell cats are almost always female and why their fur has patchy distributions of orange and black hairs. Please give a thorough answer.
3) Describe four differences between the processes of mitosis and meiosis. Be as specific as you can, particularly in the different stages of each process.
4) Describe the two basic laws of inheritance that Mendel developed using monohybrid and dihybrid crosses.
a. What are key differences between these laws?
b. Which law is related to each type of cross?
c. How did Mendel show which characteristic for a trait was dominant, and which was recessive?
5) The fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster is an important model system for studying inheritance in animals and genetic control of animal development, including humans. Evaluate Drosophila as a model system for human biology. What are their strengths and weaknesses as a model system?
6) What are the roles of Cohesin and Shugoshin proteins in Meiosis? When and how do they interact? When is each degraded?

NEED HELP STUDYING  Assignment 1  Topic: Climate Change and Human Health  In Uni

NEED HELP STUDYING 
Assignment 1 
Topic:
Climate Change and Human Health 
In Unit 4, we discussed human body systems, and in Unit 5, we are discussing conservation and biodiversity. Let’s use what we have learned to explore the complex interactions between climate change, the environment, and human health. 
Greenhouse gas emissions resulting from human activities are driving climatic changes.
Climate mitigation is the concept of taking action to reduce or prevent the emissions of greenhouse gases. Climate mitigation actions typically have health co-benefits. For example, implementing renewable energy technologies means fewer greenhouse gas emissions and also reduced emissions of particulate matter thus improving air quality which will translate into overall improved pulmonary health. This improved health outcome is an example of a health co-benefit. These health co-benefits may have maximum impact on already vulnerable populations (e.g. those with asthma). Current mitigation strategies will likely not be able to reverse the change in climate that has already occurred.
Adaptation strategies help people adjust to climate change impacts, such as worsened air quality, by altering behavior or way of life. An example of an adaptation strategy would be limiting outdoor exercise near major roadways to reduce exposure to greenhouse gas emissions. Through changes in human behavior, we may be able to reduce the negative impacts of climate change on human health.  
Climate change mitigation strategies confer co-benefits to human health and adaptation strategies can reduce negative health impacts.
After reading the article that is attached “TEMPERATURE RELATED DEATH AND ILLNESS 
write a paragraph, minimum of 100 words, in which you address all of the following points:
1.  What environmental condition(s) may arise in response to your chosen climate change topic?
2.  What negative health effect(s) may arise from exposure to this/these environmental condition(s)?
3.  How could climate mitigation impact health outcomes with regards to your specific climate change topic? What would be relevant health co-benefit(s) of climate mitigation?
4.  Come up with 2 adaptation strategies that individuals can incorporate into their life to adjust to the climate change impacts discussed in your chosen article.
5.  Come up with 1 adaptation strategy that society (your local community) can adopt or enact to adjust to the climate change impacts discussed in your chosen article. 
6.  Discuss any pros or cons of your listed adaptation strategies either from an economic, social, or environmental perspective.
See the introductory section above for definitions and examples of climate mitigation and adaptation strategies. If you are having trouble coming up adaptation strategies, try searching the internet for inspiration. Do not use my adaptation strategy example.
Background reading if you need some inspiration for adaptation strategies:

  Directions: Every year, natural disasters impact families, communities, nation

 
Directions:
Every year, natural disasters impact families, communities, nations, and cultures. Whether the natural disaster is a flood, hurricane, tornado, fire, or earthquake, it can alter the environment and cause potential health hazards.
For this module’s initial discussion post, research a major national or global disaster that occurred in the last decade. Provide a brief summary of the disaster and explain the common public health risks that occurred, as well as potential long-term health risks the victims might be facing. Do you think the type of natural disaster you studied has the highest risk of spreading diseases, or another type of natural disaster? Explain.
