the study of heredity
offspring with genetically different parents
sections of DNA found on the chromosome
description of an individuals particular combination of alleles (genetic makeup- can not see with eyes)
organisms that have 2 same factors for a trait
allele that expresses its phenotypic affect (shows physically)
principle of segregation
describes how inheritance of traits are passed
table that predicts the likelihood/probability that a trait will show up in an offspring
a trait controlled by 2 or more genes
mixture of traits (2 alleles show like a zebra)
traits linked by their sex chromosomes
austrian monk who was first to describe how traits were passed
offspring with genetically same parents (HOMOZYGOUS)
alternate form of a gene that determines characteristics
individuals appearance (determined by dominant allele)
organisms with 2 different factors for a trait (Tt)
an allele who's phenotype traits are not expressed
principle of independent assortment
an allele pair separate independently during the formation of gametes
crossing of an organism with an unknown genotype with a recessive
mixed (red flowers+ white flowers= pink flowers)
presence of 2 or more allels for a genetic trait
traits carried on all other chromosomes besides sex chromosomes
