Example text

The genes on the X and Y chromosomes are generally different. Different versions of the same gene are called alleles, so for most genes we have two alleles—which may be the same or different, because one copy is inherited from each parent. The difference in the alleles is caused by differences in their DNA sequence. Such differences arise because the complex biochemical processes that maintain and copy DNA are not quite perfect. Every time a cell divides, the DNA making up the genes has to be duplicated by a series of enzymes which copy it, proof-read the copy and rectify any errors.

In general, the words are the same but many show microvariation: color and colour, center and centre, plow and plough. If genetic terminology were applied to these dictionaries, we could consider the whole book as the genome and each word as a gene. We would say that the books were of the same species—they are genetically compatible, have the same genes, and we can form intelligible sentences using words with a mixture of US and UK spellings. However, they have different genotypes because when the genes are expressed they can produce different effects— equivalent to physical characteristics.

In addition, locusts are susceptible to chemical and tactile signals from other locusts which can influence which phenotype they develop. 16 These processes are an important means of retaining latent genetic diversity on which evolution can subsequently act. They also tell us much about how developmental pathways are regulated and controlled. 17 In the wild all these foxes have a silver coat colour and, as the word ‘wild’ suggests, they were usually not tame or friendly to humans. Belyaev noticed that there was however some variation even in this aspect of the phenotype: some foxes were tamer than others, and behaved more like domestic dogs when their handlers approached them.
