...Corn Kernel Color Lab Report Corn Kernel Color Lab Report Introduction The primary aim of this laboratory exercise was to investigate the inheritance of corn kernel color (blue vs. yellow) and whether it is determined by only two alleles. Variations in the color of corn kernels normally follow the principles of Mendelian genetics and are widely known to be controlled by particular gene pairs (alleles). According to Ford (2000), the gene combinations (genotype) of the kernels can be deduced by simply observing their appearance (phenotype). Methods The simulated exercise involved monohybrid crossing of corn by breeding a true breed blue corn kernel parent with a true breed yellow corn parent... ...

...corn somehow lies in the mere hypothetical existence of a primitive “wise lady” who was believed to possess “the gift of creative imagination” and an understanding of the “particulate nature of inheritance, about dominant and recessive traits, about the recombination of traits” and many other technical aspects of genetics (Galinat 571). Furthermore, the fact that there is only one kernel per cupule in teosinte and the presence of hard casings on its kernels make them difficult to eat. The movement of corn as a crop throughout the Americas was very slow. What accounts for this?  One of the probable reasons why it took a relatively long time for corn... ?

Corn breeders continue to develop and test new genetic combinations in different environmental conditions to identify different types that can give optimal agronomic performance in different geographical locations and seasons. Corn thrives in altitudes ranging from sea-level to higher altitudes greater than 11,000 feet. Such variances in altitude make it a commercial crop in many regions of the world.

Single gene defects or Mendelian disorders are rarely encountered. However, as there are nearly 18,000 single – gene disorders, in combination their effect is substantial. Single – gene disorders are inherited, by means of six patterns. These are autosomal dominant, autosomal recessive, X-linked dominant, X-linked recessive, Y-linked inheritance, and maternal or mitochondrial inheritance (Genetics).

This is hinted by the actions like those of the US Congress of subsidizing corn by the bushel therefore ensuring that its dominance is unchallenged. The boom in corn production is a result of production of corn for industrial purposes instead of just producing what is enough for normal human consumption. This is also called industrial corn.
