specific characteristic that varies from one individual to another
the offspring of crosses between parents with different traits
sequence of DNA that codes for a protein and thus determines a trait
one of a number of different forms of a gene
separation of alleles during gamete formation

term used to refer to an organism that has two identical alleles for a particular trait
term used to refer to an organism that has two different alleles for the same trait
physical characteristics of an organism
genetic makeup of an organism
independent segregation of genes during the formation of gametes
situation in which one allele is not completely dominant over another
