Mutation lab question

I didn't really know how to do translocation so this is what I did.

Mutations can affect us humans in good ways. For example we could develop to survive harsher temperatures and underwater by growing a thicker skin coat and gills. But there are also bad mutations. For example you showed us a cat that was born with 2 heads and couldn't survive because the heart couldn't support both heads. Also, it can be bad because it can cause lethal diseases. It also benefits because it might make us do things that we never thought of doing.

Oreo lab question

It is very important for cells to copy their dna exactly because if they don't there will be a mutation and that can lead to cancer and other lethal sicknesses . Also the cells won't function correctly because there will be a stomach cell in a skin tissue if they are not copied exactly.

monster creation lab

1.because everybody in a society can have the same dominant genotype of brown eyes so because it is dominant it becomes the phenotype and everybody ends up with the same brown eyes.

2. Yes because if two recessive genotypes come together they will be different from the parents. Everyone has one recessive genotype so if those two come together it becomes a child with traits different from both parents.
