Reflection for Week of 3/27

How did you do on the work?
Much of this week was spent looking at Mendelian Genetics and inheritance patterns. We also looked at using Chi Square tests to test inheritance patterns. The lab this week was the virtual fly lab. We also did vodcasts 4.10-4.12.

What do you think you understand well?
I now understand dihybrid crosses well; that was something I struggled with initially. I can perform dihybrid crosses with no problem and calculate expected genotypes/phenotypes. 

Where do you think you could improve?
The only thing that gave me trouble was identifying some of the inheritance patterns. 

What strategies will you use to improve?
It will take practice to be able to identify all of the inheritance patterns.

How does the work we are doing fit into the context/narrative of the course?
We are currently looking at inheritance patterns. How genes are passed on is a big part of biology and this course.
