One or two alternitave forms of gene cause by mutation and also they are found in the same place as the chromosome.
Any chromosome not considered a sex chromosome and it is not involved in sex determination.
A person or object that transports or conveys.
A similar trait, feature, of an individual.
Each of the two threadlike strands into which a chromosome divides longitudinally during cell division. Each contains a double helix of DNA.
Heterozygous genotype that equally expresses the traits from both alleles
The deliberate breeding of two different individuals that results in offspring that carry part of the genetic material of each parent
is a cross between two different lines that differ in two observed traits.
an individual containing two allelic forms of a gene, one is expressed to the exclusion of the other
either of a pair of alternative forms of a gene that can occupy the same locus on a particular chromosome and that control the same character; "some alleles are dominant over others"
Offspring (progeny) of the initial parents in a genetic cross
Offspring (progeny) of the F1 generation in a genetic cross.
specific region of DNA that codes for a particular protein
the genetic constitution of an individual organism.
The expected numbers of different genotypes produced by a particular cross.
Passing genetic factors from parent to offspring.
When one gamete is capital and the other is lowercase.
When the gamete is the same either if it is lowercase or uppercase.
the offspring of two plants or animals of different species or varieties, such as a mule (a hybrid of a donkey and a horse).
Phenotype of heterozygous individual is between the phenotypes of two homozygous genotypes
the number and visual appearance of the chromosomes in the cell nuclei of an organism or species.
Law of Independent Assortment
gametes assort differently during gamete production. different traits can occur.
Law of Segregation
members of a gene pair seperate each other in order to make gametes.
specific location of a gene on a chromosome.
All the offspring have one dominant and one recessive allele for that gene
the set of observable characteristics of an individual resulting from the interaction of its genotype with the environment.
A predicted phenotype.
First set of parents in a genetic cross
A genotype which when crossed with an identical genotype creates progeny which all have the same phenotype as parents
Is the allele that is expressed only when two copies are present.
A chromosome involved with determining the sex of an organism, typically one of two kinds
Sex Linked (X-Linked)
A trait associated with a gene that is carried only by the male or female parent.
Two identical strands joined by a common centromere as a result of a chromosome that duplicated during the S phase of the cell cycle.
A feature of an organism
To determne the gametes.
