    how are mitosis and meiosis different?
    -prophase of mitosis, homologues aren't allowed 2 interact
    -prophase I of meiosis, chromatids cross over to make chiasma
    -paternal & maternal chromatids break and rejoin @ different places
    &
    -metaphase of mitosis chromosomes line up end to end
    -metaphase I of meiosis line up side to side
    -then separate 4 haploids in meiosis II

    genes on same chromosomes
    violate independent assortment cause they are carried to gametes together

    how many alleles exist?
    does each gene affect 1 trait?
    multiple allelism - existance of more than 2 alleles per 1 gene
    -called polymorphic
    &
    pleiotropic - gene that influences many traits

    secondary structure of DNA
    sugar, phosphate group and nitrogenous base that move in 5' --> 3'
    daughters have 1 old and 1 new strand
    antiparallel strands make a template 4 production of new strands with bases being added 2 new strand by complementary base pairing

    what are the enzymes involved in DNA replication?
    helicase: unzips DNA b/c it breaks Hydrogen bonds
    topoisomerase: relax DNA so it uncoils by cutting it
    primase: RNA primer to initiate replication
    ligase: fuses DNA (nucleic acids)

    How is the leading strand synthesized?
    -DNA polymerase works in 5-->3 direction so it synthesizes this strand
    -needs a primer to add to 3' end to complete complementary strand
    -primase = enzyme that synthesizes RNA & primer for DNA synthesis
    -product is called leading/continuous strand

    How is the lagging strand synthesized?
    -primase must synthesize RNA to act as a primer for DNA polymerase to add bases to 3' end
    -short DNA fragments are synthesized then attached to a whole
    -short fragments = ozaki fragments
    -attached 2 whole when DNA polymerase removes RNA primer & fills in appropriate DNA
    -DNA ligase catalyzes phosphodiester bond b/w the 2 fragments

    what are telomeres?
    -redundant DNA after shorter strand
    -doesn't code for anything so if you lose it it doesn't matter
    -enzyme: telemerase makes telomeres from primary sex cells
    -attaches to telomere & catalyzes DNA in 5-->3 direction with RNA template

    mistakes inn DNA synthesis
    DNA polymerase can proofread if wrong base is added
    -enzyme pauses, removes mixmatched base and moves on
    -if polymerase leave a mismatched pair behind, it's corrected by enzymes in Sphase
