Genetics Test Study Set
The scientific study of heredity.
The passing of characteristics from parents to offspring.
Specific physical characteristics that can be observed using your senses.
European monk who is known as the "Father of Genetics"

Types of traits that you learn through experiences.
Type of plant that Mendel was famous for studying in his monastery.
Both of these genotypes are:
Both parents in this cross are considered:
This is an example of a:
If green is dominant to yellow, how many offspring are green?
If green is dominant to yellow, how many offspring are yellow?
Which type of cell in the body contains half the number of chromosomes?
What is the HUMAN number of chromosomes found in our sex cells?
What is the HUMAN number of chromosomes found in our body cells?
A typical house cat has 38 chromosomes in a body cell. How many chromosomes in each sex cell?
A typical pigeon has 40 chromosomes in a sex cell. How many chromosomes in each body cell?
The number of alleles you inherit.
The chromosome theory of inheritance states that genes are carried from parents to offspring on these:
Genotype of a female.
Genotype of a male.
