Assessment 3
Genetics
The content of this assessment will test your knowledge of key concepts in genetics and will prepare you for Assessment 4 (description of Assessment 4 follows):
Phenotypic variation is the normal variation that is apparent in any family, but it is also
the presence or absence of disease or disease susceptibility between individuals in families and populations. As geneticists, we identify genes and genetic variants, and relate this information to phenotypic variation. The rationale of this final assessment is to understand genetics in a professional context by linking specific genetic variant(s) to protein function and phenotypic variation.
