the passing of traits from parent to offspring
the different forms of a trait that a gene may have
the study of how traits are inherited through the interactions of alleles
received different genetic information, or different alleles, for a trait from each parent
dominate or cover up a recessive factor
Factors that will be masked or hidden by the dominant factors
a chart that shows all the possible combinations of alleles that can result from a genetic cross; An uppercase letter stands for dominant and a lowercase letter stands for recessive
genetic makeup of an organism; based on information from a Punnett Square
what an organism LOOKS like based on its genotype
an organism with two alleles for a trait that are the same
An organism that has two different alleles for a trait
When the offspring of two homozygous parents show an intermediate phenotype; one allele is not completely dominant over the ex: red flower and white flower = pink flower
occurs when a group of gene pairs acts together to
produce a trait; eye color is an example
an allele inherited on a sex chromosome; color blindness is a sex-linked disorder
experimenting with biological and chemical methods to change the arrangement of DNA that makes up a gene
the different forms of a gene
