January 6, 2018 Reply Kyle Rodenberg Hey Clint Thanks for the Genetics refresher. January 28, 2018 Reply Viperion Okay so second try it means that a zygote is/has two different alleles say, one for black hair and another for blonde. Maybe. February 7, 2018 Reply Laly M. I wish i had this video when i was in school. All they did was make us memorize definitions but i didn't truly understand or even care. I had no idea at the time that i would need to know genetics for breeding animals. Thank you for using visuals, speaking clearly and most importantly, the re-caps to really stick it in while it's fresh. February 10, 2018 Reply Rock Tofin You mean the zygote has only one copy of the gene and it got that way buy haveing to different alleles February 12, 2018 Reply Cathartic Outlet This video is very wholesome and takes me back to the wonderful days when life was easy, genetics was fun and I wasn't aware of polyploidy and next generation sequencing methods. I hope this series receives more attention because it has the potential to be a great learning tool for any kiddies looking to get into biology. Keep up the great work!!! February 12, 2018 Reply inue windwalker Wow LEARNINGI have an orange ghost…. Tbh I wonder what would happen if I bred him with a pastel queen beeI think you mean by heterozygous means that it's 2 different genes but it does the same thing, like blue and brown eyes March 31, 2018 Reply Kathleen Watching so you can work on the fourth one! Lol April 14, 2018 Reply kopee lampoong very nice info – i can appreciate that since i have a smattering of ideas about embryology, microbiology and parasitology…! however, i'm more interested about the visual outcomes, but i'm having a hard time distinguishing different morphs, and especially among similarly coloured morphs… as of now, i haven't found one single site that describes them all – so now i'm asking other viewers here if there is one site where i could read about the differences and similarities of each basic morph (colours, effects on black or red or yellow pigment, addition or deletion of whites, etc, etc, etc)… thanks in advance!

Zygote is two haploids joined together and heterogeneous means the pairs of genes are different. So, parents had different genes and the offspring got one gene from each parent? May 6, 2018 Reply Shelby Pennington I took AP biology and I wish my teacher had been this excited about it and this good at explaining it.

BOOM June 20, 2018 Reply Taylor Patterson The zygote has two different alleles because your parents split their chromosomes up to give them to you! Right…? Also, diploid sounds like a funny insult June 25, 2018 Reply 93lozfan I REALLY want a blue eyed lucy but i didn't have the money to order one so I settled for a mojave. which is a good start because i also want to get into breeding eventually and mojaves can have blue eyed lucies babies. i think it was a good investment and by gf loves the mojave. June 29, 2018 Reply Adw Wilson Im a bit confused.. i thought that you had 23 chromoshomes and then a copy of them for a potential child… so if a sperm and an egg gave you 23 each you would have 46 and no copies im probably mistaken plx can someone help July 1, 2018 Reply Evelynn Lillith clint please be my bio teacher I absolutely love the way you teach!! :(( July 3, 2018 Reply Brandon Federico I learned all those terms in science it honestly sucked to study July 6, 2018 Reply trashbug DNA?

September 14, 2018 Reply Auriea Moore Q: What do I mean when I say a zygote is heterozygous for something & how did it get that way?My answer: It refers to dominant and recessive genes. It means that an animal is heterozygous and appears one way, but it's second allele is a recessive allele that may cause it's offspring to appear another way; if paired correctly. Ex: i have a ball python that is normal, and het for albino. My snake looks normal, but if i bred it with another ball python that's normal het for albino there would be a 25% chance that my snake is going to be completely albino. As there would also be 25% for completely normal and 50% for normal het-albino. Just the same as how my snake was made normal het-albino itself. One or both of it's parents had the ressesive gene for albino and passed one normal allele and one albino allele to my snake as a zygote. Then there are things like co-dominant genes where both characteristics show. September 14, 2018 Reply Annarene Victor Love this! Can see why you're an educator.

I wish you were my bio teacher in freshman year (mb you will bring different reptile to class hah)On to the answer: a heterozygus is an animal that have two different alleles (two different versions of the gene). They get that way because they got one allele from the mom(egg) and one from the dad (sperm).

IDK, but I have a guess: an allele is the physical part of the DNA, whereas the gene is an abstract concept of a trait that comes from DNA.Again IDK, but from my first guess, I would think it might be possible for multiple alleles to make up a gene.Thoughts?

July 25, 2019 Reply Erin Meow Clint these videos are SO underrated!! It's late here so will watch properly tomorrow, but I have to tell you how glad I am that this exists. I love genetics, but I slip into oversplaining (which likely means my understanding is not as great as I'd like to think!) August 6, 2019 Reply Natalie Harris A zygote is heterozygous when it contains two different alleles for the same gene. For example: my husband has blue eyes and I have brown. Our children would be heterozygous for brown and blue eyes, because we gave them an allele for two different color genes. If we both had the same color of eyes our children would be homozygous for whichever color. I have a pretty solid understanding of genetics and how they work from practical application over the years, but I am absolutely loving this series already! I feel it's giving me a better grasp of the terminology, since that's where I tend to struggle. August 11, 2019 Reply Guyot Bégin-Benoit I would really love to see a video about your thoughts on the spider gene. Since you're a biologist, it would be very interesting to have a scientific perspective on this topic. Your videos are amazing. Cheers August 18, 2019 Reply Avi Henriksen Saying that a zygote is heterozygous for a gene means that it only has one copy of that gene on the allele. It got that way by one of the parents passing down that gene and the other parent passing down a different gene. If it were homozygous, it would have two copies of the same gene, and both parents would have passed down that gene. One gene was passed from each parent because the cells that carry genes and combine to form a zygote, sperm and egg, are haploid, which means it carries half of the required DNA to make a diploid zygote! Finally, meiosis, which is where a chromosome splits in two, is how the reproductive cells got the genes to be passed on.You're absolutely right, typing it out/thinking up a full answer does help me understand! I definitely get it now, thank you! I can't wait to watch the rest.
