The Y Chromosome
Offner, Susan
American Biology Teacher, v72 n4 p235-240 Apr 2010
The Y chromosome is of great interest to students and can be used to teach about many important biological concepts in addition to sex determination. This paper discusses mutation, recombination, mammalian sex determination, sex determination in general, and the evolution of sex determination in mammals. It includes a student activity that illustrates how sex is determined in people.
