TRY PROBLEMS 22 AND 23 The Future of Genetics Numerous advances in genetics are being made today, and genetics remains at the forefront of biological research. New, rapid methods for sequencing DNA are being used to sequence the genomes of numerous species, from bacteria to elephants, and the information content of genetics is increasing at a rapid pace. New details about gene structure and function are continually expanding our knowledge of how genetic information is encoded and how it specifies traits.

Most eukaryotic cells are diploid, and their two chromosome sets can be arranged in homologous pairs. Haploid cells contain a single set of chromosomes. ✔ CONCEPT CHECK 2 Diploid cells have a. two chromosomes b. two sets of chromosomes c. 5 Prokaryotic cells reproduce by binary fission. (a) Process of d. two pairs of homologous chromosomes binary fission. (b) Micrograph showing a bacterial cell undergoing binary fission. [Part b: Lee D. ] nucleus. We will now take a closer look at the structure of eukaryotic chromosomes.

No, because horses are expensive to house, feed, and propagate, they have too few progeny, and their generation time is too long. 3.
