Alleles and Genes

1387 ratings | 141429 views
Join the Amoeba Sisters as they discuss the terms "gene" and "allele" in context of a gene involved in PTC (phenylthiocarbamide) taste sensitivity. Note: as mentioned throughout video, the ability to taste PTC may be more complex than a single gene trait. This video serves as an introduction before exploring Punnett squares in our heredity series: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fcGDUcGjcyk&list=PLwL0Myd7Dk1FVxYPO_bVbk8oOD5EZ2o5W This video has a handout! http://www.amoebasisters.com/handouts While this video only focuses on basic understanding of alleles and genes as well as the ability to taste- or not taste- PTC (phenylthiocarbamide), we encourage learning more! Here is a recommended reading that expands on the genetics involved in tasting PTC and includes some of the history in how it was discovered: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3349222/ Support us on Patreon! http://www.patreon.com/amoebasisters Our FREE resources: GIFs: http://www.amoebasisters.com/gifs.html Handouts: http://www.amoebasisters.com/handouts.html Comics: http://www.amoebasisters.com/parameciumparlorcomics Connect with us!

The videos center on Pinky's certification and experience in teaching science at the high school level. Pinky's teacher certification is in grades 4-8 science and 8-12 composite science (encompassing biology, chemistry, and physics). Amoeba Sisters videos only cover concepts that Pinky is certified to teach, and they focus on her specialty: secondary life science. For more information about The Amoeba Sisters, visit: http://www.amoebasisters.com/about-us.html We cover the basics in biology concepts at the secondary level.

So, is the ability or inability to taste the difference in diet and regular soda is genetic? Most people I know can tell the difference, but I can't....

Would you guys be able to do a video on Nephrons? You guys are amazing and Its the one section in my Year 12 Biology course that I am having trouble on :(
Shaurya Rajput (2 months ago)
Ups ups m sorry , now my doubt has been cleared after seeing video again actually i got confused with the diagram or the picture of the pair of chromosomes just assuming it as one single chromosome😝😝😝😝
Shaurya Rajput (2 months ago)
Just confused with the fact that are the alleles present on the homologous chromosomes , i mean on non sister chromatids or if they are present on the sister chromatids but i think that they shud b present on non sister chromatids and at the same locus as u said but in the video they are show on sister chromatids , so lil bit confused😓😓😓

ptc paper basically tastes like the frosting of an old bitter sugarless cupcake :/
Virginia Osueke (2 months ago)
Oh my gosh! I had to stop the video and re-evaluate my childhood. You have the same exact PTC horror story as me! I felt so out of place, like I was missing out on an opportunity. LOL one classmate tried to cheer me up by also telling me i should be happy I can't taste it even trying to describe the taste to me, but i didn't feel any better either.

Ordinary Flame (3 months ago)
Came here to tell you that both of you wonderful people have done me wonders. Helped me understand complex things in 9 - 15 minutes, when my teacher lectures us all day (knowing that no one listens) and tests us on unfair crap we don't know. Thank you for everything, please keep this up for future students.

Hey Amoeba sisters!! I'm a freshman in biology and your videos have helped me so much! I would love it if you could make more bacterial videos on chemoautotrophs, heterotrophs, decomposers, etc. I just find it all very confusing and you guys always seem to make everything so clear! Love you guys!

I wouldn't mention it is bitter because some people will "taste" bitterness once you tell them. If they cause say it's bitter, then you didn't influence their response.
