Law of Segregation
During formation of gametes, 2 traits carried by each parent separate: Monohybrid cross
Phenotype ratio: 3:1, Genotype ratio: 1:2:1 (Aa x Aa)
Law of independent assortment
Applies in a cross between 2 individuals hybrid for 2+traits Not on the same chromosome
Cross between 2 individuals hybrid for 2 different traits: AaBb x AaBb, can have AB Ab aB ab: 9:3:3:1
Dominance characterized by blending: Eg. White + Red = pink flower
Dominance where both traits show: eg. Blood groups (MN) in humans
When there are more than 2 allelic forms of a gene: eg. A, B, AB, O blood types
Ability of 1 gene to affect an organism in several ways
2 separate genes control 1 trait, but 1 gene masks the expression of the other gene
Traits like this result from a blending of several separate genes
Inheritance influenced by sex of individual carrying the traits
Genes on the same chromosome
Traits carried on the X chromosome
Chromosome that is not X or Y
Site of chromosome crossover
Any changes in the genome, can be gene mutations (changes in sequence) or chromosome mutations
Chromosomal aberration of fragment lost
When a chromosomal fragment reattaches in reverse direction
When a fragment of a chromosome is attached to a non-homologous chromosome
When there are extra chromosomes
Error in meiosis where homologous chromosomes fail to separate
Any abnormal chromosome number
