Reproductive System—Physiology of Genetic Inheritance
Lecture no. 27 from the course: Understanding the Human Body: An Introduction to Anatomy and Physiology, 2nd Edition
Taught by Professor Anthony A. Goodman | 45 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
This lecture examines the physiology of genetic inheritance. It begins by identifying the differences between DNA in somatic and germ cells and between genetic and inherited changes in cell DNA. Next, it distinguishes between types of cells and reviews allele inheritance and the sex chromosomes. We examine several developmental abnormalities related to digestion, respiration, and cardiovascular activity.
