There are even sometimes individuals who are genetically XY, but due to male hormone insensitivity, develop some or nearly all female characteristics.

10 Incredible Chemical Reaction GIFs Explained We encounter thousands of chemical reactions every day: plants use them in photosynthesis, metals rust over time, and combustion reactions provide us with heat and light, among thousands of other daily uses. Chemical reactions occur when reactants transform into new substances, called products, through creating and breaking bonds between atoms. Sometimes the process creates some pretty wild effects. Check out our top 10 chemical reactions below: 1) Disintegration (Mercury Reacts with Aluminum) Genetics - Mrs. E's Biology Site In this unit, we will be studying Molecular Genetics (DNA & Protein Synthesis) and Mendelian Genetics (all those Punnet squares you know and love!). However, in order to learn how to apply all that genetics goodness and get to a level 5, we will start with a problem. In this problem, you are a doctor who specializes in genetic diseases seen in children.
