Dogs E6. Pick any trait you like in any species of wild plant or animal. The trait must somehow vary among different members of the species. 7). A. Discuss all of the background information that you already have (from personal observations) regarding this trait. B. Propose a hypothesis that explains the genetic variation within the species. For example, in the case of the butterflies, your hypothesis might be that the dark butterflies survive better in dark forests, and the light butterflies survive better in sunlit fields.

Molecular geneticists often study mutant genes that have abnormal function. This is called a genetic approach to the study of a research question. In many cases, researchers analyze the effects of gene mutations that eliminate the function of a gene. This type of mutation is called a loss-of-function mutation, and the resulting gene is called a loss-of-function allele. By studying the effects of such mutations, the role of the functional, nonmutant gene is often revealed. For example, let’s suppose that a particular plant species produces purple flowers.
