This online tutorial on the Biological Basis of Heredity was developed by Dennis O'Neil of the Behavioral Sciences Department at Palomar College. The tutorial provides information about five main topics: Basic Cell Structures, Cell Reproduction, Recombination and Linkage, Sex Linked Genes, and Molecular Level of Genetics. Students wishing to review content material from the different topic areas can utilize online flashcards and crossword puzzles, which are also available in printed form. The site also contains a sizeable Glossary of Terms, a selection of related links, and information about tutorial accessibility. In addition, this site links to a number of other physical anthropology tutorials developed by O'Neil.
