Different forms of a gene
Changes in gene within a population
The likelihood that a particular gene will occur
Having two different alleles for a particular gene
Having the same alleles for a particular gene
Is the gene that is dominant, and is expressed (always) by a capital letter.
Is the gene that is recessive, and is expressed (always) by a lowercase letter.
Your genetic makeup (you can't see your genotype).
Your physical traits (what you see on the outside)
Mendel's Principal Genetics
In independent assortment it helps account for the many genetic variations observed in plants, animals, and other organisms - even when they have the same parents.
When two traits are expressed at the same time.
The mixing of two genes together.
Diploid cell would have 46 chromosomes. 2n= Diploid (somatic, body)
Haploid cell would have 23 chromosomes. n= Haploid (sex cell, sperm/egg).
