the 2 alleles an individual has for a trait
Characteristic that an organism shows (what they look like)
Both alleles in an organisms genotype are the same

the study of genes and their effect on hereditary traits
Gregor Mendel cross-pollinated plants that had different traits, and found that they were heritable; studied peas
Why did Mendel study pea plants?
Mendel studied pea plants because they produce a lot of offspring and have short generation time
2 genes must determine every trait; one gene is dominant over the recessive; each parent only passes on one gene to their offspring
Mendel's points of experiment
Began with purebred plants; used many plants to make sure results were scientifically significant; selected specific traits in contrasting forms
