Do any of you recognize the building the background?
2. Compare and contrast the following pair of artworks using the points of comparison as a guide.
For extra details on the Hagia Sophia, check out this video from smarthistory:
The video below is from an AP Art history class that includes a productive presentation of the architectural history of the building that starts around 3 minutes and 50 sections into the video. So you don’t have to watch the entire video, you can skip to the 3:50 point.
The Dome of the Rock was constructed in Jerusalem in 687-692, while Hagia Sophia was constructed over a hundred years earlier from 532-537 in Constantinople during the Early Byzantine period. At first glance the structures appear relatively similar with central domes and lower geometric structures surrounding them. Upon closer examination though, there are numerous architectural, structural, and decorative differences. For example, the Dome of the Rock’s central dome is surrounded by an ornately decorated octagon. The Hagia Sophia, however, while still sporting a central dome, is surrounded by, not an octagon, but several smaller lower domes in a square block. The interiors are also very different. The Hagia Sophia has a very unique plan with a vertically oriented central plan AS WELL as the features of a longitudinally oriented basillica (Kleiner p 126). In contrast, the Dome of the Rock is more of a circular shaped rotunda structure with the focus on the interior of the huge peaked dome. The decoration of the two is also very different. The Hagia Sophia has a very simple, classic Justinian exterior with a colorful, light-filled interior featuring lots of butresses and windows. It is also covered with stones of many different colors and a gilded interior dome that gives the illusion of the sun. The Dome of the Rock is ornate on the inside and outside. The exterior features a gold dome and vividly colored mosaic (Kleiner p 146). The interior also is covered in mosaic with lots of gold, blue, and cream colors.
Three features that distinguish Islamic architecture from the architecture of western antiquity will be the Mosque face Mecca is closely related to Muslim. The Minaret is another Characteristic of Mosque architecture, this is the tower were the Muezzin calls the faithful to pray. snail shell that was 165ft tall, stepped spiral ram and it served to announce presence of Islam in the Tigris valley. (pg. 147-148) Mosque interiors are highly decorated with wooden screens of geometric marquetry and colorful tile (pg. 148)
Dome of the Rock is an early Islamic 687-692 by Abd al-Malik to mark the triumph of Islam in Jerusalem on site sacred to Muslims, Christians and Jews. It has the form of a octagon with towering dome, not a Mosque. It rises from a huge platform known as Noble Enclosure. (pg. 144-146)
Hagia Sophia, Constantinople was the Emperor’s most important project was the construction of Hagia Sophia. Between 532 and 537 its dimensions were formidable about 270 feet long and 240 feet wide. the Dome is eastern and western half-domes who thrusts descend into smaller half-dome surrounding columned exedrae. The structure now standing is essentially the 6th century edifice. (pg 126-127) It became a museum after 1934. Is the only church that has maintained its originality since 1453.

This week we take a look at the inheritance of eye color. Although often assumed to follow a simple Mendelian pattern, it is actually a mutlifactorial trait. Discuss eye color genetics and inheritance by reading a News article in the Journal Nature (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. on the genetic testing of eye color prediction in DNA forensic analysis and then read the research paper by Liu in Current Biology (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.. Liu talks about genetic testing in the emerging field of consumer genomics, particularly in light of attempting personalized medicine (tailoring medical treatment to one’s genotype).
Problem Set Questions: 2/28/19
1. Sunflowers with flowers 10 cm in diameter are crossed with a plant that has 20 cm flowers. The F1 plants have flowers 15 cm in diameter. In the F2 generation, 4 flowers are 10 cm in diameter and 4 are 20 cm in diameter. Between these are 5 phenotypic classes with diameters intermediate to those at the extremes.
a) Assuming that the alleles that contribute to flower diameter act additively, how many genes control flower size?
b) How much does each additive allele contribute to flower diameter?
c) What size flower makes up the largest phenotypic class?
2. Why are monozygotic twins who are reared apart so useful in the calculation of heritability?
3. If monozygotic twins show complete concordance for a trait, whether they are reared together or apart, what does this suggest about the heritability of the trait?
4. What does the ob gene code for in mice? How does it work? Is this a gene found only in animals, or do humans have it also?
5. What is the importance of the comparison of traits between adopted and natural children in determining heritability?
