Mendelian Genetics

Vocabulary Wordstrait: variation of a particular charactergenetics: study of heredity hybrid: offspring of two different true-breeding varietiesmonohybrid cross: parent plants differ in only one (mono) characteralleles: alternative forms of geneshomozygous: two alleles are the sameheterozygous: two alleles are differentdominant allele: when only one of the two different alleles in a heterozgyous individual appears to affect the traitrecessive allele: the alele that does not appear to affect the trait

Dog Breeding Game

Phenotype: an observable trait (eye color)Genotype: the genetic makeup (alleles that code for the eye color)***You can SEE your phenotype, you cannot see your genotype! phenotype = PHotograph

Punnet squares are diagrams that show you all of the possible outcomes of a genetic cross. You can use a Punnet Square to predict probabilities of particular outcomes if you know BOTH parents genetic makeup!!
