variation of a particular inherited character
study of heredity
offspring of two different true-breeding varieties
offspring of two of the same breeding varieties
mating of two organisms that differ in only one character
alternative form of a gene
having identical alleles for a gene
having different alleles for a gene
descriptive of an allele in a heterozygous individual that appears to be the only one affecting a trait
descriptive of an allele in a heterozygous individual that does not appear to affect a trait
diagram showing the probabilities of the possible outcomes of a genetic cross
observable traits of an organism
genetic makeup of an organism; an organism's combination of alleles
mating of an individual of unknown genotype but dominant phenotype with a homozygous recessive individual
mating of two organisms that differ in two characters
inheritance in which heterozygotes have a phenotype intermediate between the phenotypes of the two homozygotes
inheritance pattern in which a heterozygote expresses the distinct traits of both alleles
combined effect of two or more genes on a single character
specific location of a gene on a chromosome
gene located on a sex chromosome

Law of Segregation
Allele pairs (the two alleles for a heritable character) separate during gametogenesis and end up in different gametes
Law of Independanet Assortment
Each allele for a trait segregates into gametes independently of any other alleles
more than two alleles on one chromosome
X - linked
one parent lacks a gene
Neither allele is dominant. Heterozygote shows intermediate phenotype

human blood type is an example of..
eye color, weight, and skin color are examples of
