    plants were homozygous and both parent pea plants had two identical alleles. The plants in F1 generation were all heterozygous with two different alleles‚ one from each parent. This part can be understood more clearly by looking at the genotypes instead of only the phenotype. Mendel also discovered that one trait is dominant over the other trait. However‚ the dominant allele does not alter the recessive allele in any way and both alleles can be passed on to the next generation unchanged. These experiments

    Know definitions of the words used for Meiosis‚ Mendel’s work and Genetics Dominant – expression that is always expressed when its gene recessive - An expression that is expressed only when its allele is the only form of the gene present in the genotype. incomplete dominance - Neither allele is dominant to the other‚ thus each is expressed in the heterozygous genotype producing an intermediate phenotype. EX. Red (RR) and White (R’R’) snapdragons produce pink (RR’). epistasis - A condition

    also hold true for genetics due to the law of independent assortment. Each alternative type of outcome in a gene acts independently of the other possible outcomes. Alleles: Each of the possible forms a gene is called an allele. Most genes will have 2 alleles. Dominant – The allele that appears most frequently. Recessive – The allele that appears least frequently. Dominant v. Recessive: Dominant – Freckles‚ Widows Peak‚ Free Earlobe Recessive – No Freckles‚ Straight Hair Line‚ Attached Earlobe

    an 11 : 11 ratio‚ do you think it would be possible to find a pod with all yellow peas? All green? Explain. Answer: Yes‚ it is possible to find a pod with only yellow peas or heterozygous for the seed color gene‚ if all the flowers had dominant allele in a given fruit/pod. This could be also one example of rare changes at a physiological level. 3. In Table 2-1‚ state the recessive phenotype in each of the seven cases. Answer: wrinkled seeds; green seeds; white petals; pinched pods; yellow

Part 1: Monohybrid Cross—Predicting Freckles in an F1 Generation Apply your understanding of how alleles assort and combine during reproduction to evaluate a scenario involving a monohybrid cross. The allele for having freckles (F) is dominant over the allele for not having freckles (f). Some characteristics in people are inherited as simple dominant and recessive traits. One example is freckles. Freckles is a dominant trait

    genes. Experiments had established that the allele for yellow seeds were the dominant allele (Y) and green seeds were the recessive allele (y). There were two different ways as to how seed shape and seed color would be passed onto offspring. One was independent assortment‚ which says that the allele for seed shape and the allele for seed color present in each parent would assort independently. Another was dependent assortment‚ which says that the alleles for seed color and
