both members of the chromosome pair move to the same pole of the cell during Anaphase I.
This means there is an
extra chromosome in half of the gametes

Super Female (Triple X Syndrome)
Most African Americans can trace their ancestry to west central Africa. Malaria, a serious parasite disease that infects red blood cells, is common in this region of Africa. People who are heterozygous for the sickle cell allele are generally healthy and have the benefit of being resistant to malaria
