But our interest in human genetics does not stop at the boundaries of the species, for what we learn about human genetic variation and its sources and transmission inevitably contributes to our understanding of genetics in general, just as the study of variation in other species informs our understanding of our own.

Essay # 1. Meaning of Genetic Variation: Evolution requires genetic variation. If there were no dark moths, the population could not have evolved from mostly light to mostly dark. In order for continuing evolution there must be mechanisms to increase or create genetic variation and mechanisms to decrease it. Mutation is a change in a gene.

The science of evolution The process of evolution Evolution as a genetic function The concept of natural selection. The central argument of Darwin’s theory of evolution starts with the existence of hereditary variation.Experience with animal and plant breeding had demonstrated to Darwin that variations can be developed that are “useful to man.” So, he reasoned, variations must occur in ...

Expression quantitative trait loci (eQTL) studies have established convincing relationships between genetic variants and gene expression. Most of these studies focused on the mean of gene expression level, but not the variance of gene expression level ( i.e. , gene expression variability). In the present study, we systematically explore genome-wide association between genetic variants and gene ...

Evolution and Genetics • Evolution is defined as: changes in allele frequencies of a population over time • Any physiological or morphological changes not represented in germ cell genes will not contribute to evolution Genetic variation Due to random mutations, differences exist in the genetic code (genome) between the individuals of any ...

Founder effect is the loss of genetic variation that occurs when a new population is established by a small number of individuals that are cleaved from a larger population. This new population does not have the genetic diversity of the previous one. Because the community is very small and also geographical or socially isolated, some genetic traits are becoming more prevalent in the population.

Genetic variation also helps organisms survive in different climates and environments. If the environment is unpredictable over time and includes a variety of diseases and predators, some differences among individuals increase the chances of some individuals surviving to reproduce, while others do not. In disease resistance, genetic diversity ...

While variation is produced by mutation, recombination, gene flow and genetic drift, only natural selection and its variants of sexual selection (also known as “assortive mating”), artificial selection (selective breeding of domesticated animals and plants), and group selection) act on phenotypic variations to produce evolution in a ...

Therefore, they have no effect on evolution. Conclusion. Genetic variation and environmental variation are two factors which bring alterations in the phenotype of a population. Genetic variations are caused by the changes in the genome of individuals. It mainly occurs during the sexual reproduction. The effect of the external environmental ...
