Homework Help: Biology

Posted by Ruth on Saturday, November 5, 2011 at 8:52am.

I have written an answer for the question below.

Why do Ellie and her brothers resemble her parents?
Explain how genetic information passes from parents to their offspring.

Please check if i have included all the scientific words and if i have explained how genetic information passes from parents to their offspring?

Ellie and her brothers resemble her parents. A body is made up of cells, within each cell there is a nucleus and within the nucleus are the chromosomes- DNA coiled around proteins. Each human cell has 64 chromosomes which determine what the offspring looks like. 23 comes from the egg cell and 23 comes from the sperm cell. The egg and sperm cells are from the parents. The transfer of chromosomes from Ellie and her brother's parents during reproduction that makes them resemble their parents. The combination of recessive and dominant genes in the chromosomes from your parents that make you look unique.
