Common features human share
-4tissue types
-23 pairs of chromosome
-206 bones
-DNA
-Bipedal
-Opposable thumbs
-highly evolved brain
-24 ribs
-4 chambered heart
Epithelial tissue
-Forms lining, covering, and glandular tissue of the body
-cells packed tightly together
Connective tissue
-Protects, supports, and binds together other body tissue
-consistent matrix allows to to fill spaces
Muscle tissue
-Specialized to contract and cause movement
-skeletal muscle
-cardiac muscle
-smooth muscle
Nervous tissue
-Composed of neurons that send and receive electrical signals in the body
-responds to stimuli and transmit impulses
-brain, spinal cord, nerves
Determine gender using skull or pelvis for female
-Round eye sockets
-V-shaped mandible
-Smoother bones
-rounded pelvis
-wider pubic arch
Determine gender using skull or pelvis for male
-square eye
-U-shaped mandible
-brow ridges,sharped
-heart shaped pelvis
-angled in coccyx
Structure and function of Deoxyribonucleic acid
-Deoxyribose: sugar in it made up of building blocks of nucleic acid
-double stranded helical molecule made of chromosomes in nucleus
-DNA makes up genes
-Genes make up chromosomes
-Each gene codes for a protein which determines trait
How does DNA differ from person to person
-99.9% matches of every person
-determined by nucleotides
Different biometrics for verification
Compare DNA of two people
-scientists perform polymerase chain reaction
-amplify making the sample bigger than original
-Cut DNA with restriction enzymes
-Run through gel electrophoresis to analyze size of each fragment
-Restriction enzyme will cut each persons DNA in a different place
-Restriction fragment length polymerase will look different
Restriction enzymes
-Mostly come from bacteria
-Chemicals in it break down DNA of invading viruses
-Used for cutting DNA into smaller fragments(RFLP
Restriction fragment length polymorphism
-Bit of DNA after the long strand has been cut by restriction enzyme
-Seen through electrophoresis gel
Gel electrophoresis
-To carry across with electricity
-DNA has (-) charge so they’re attracted to (+) charge
-Samples are placed in wells within agarose gel near a (-) electrode
-When turned on, they move toward the (+) electrode
-Bit get separated by size making it possible to tell people apart
