Sequence of DNA that codes for a protein and thus determines a trait; is passed from parent to offspring
Diagram that can be used to predict the genotype and phenotype combinations of a genetic cross
A gene that has more than two alleles; more than two possible alleles for the trait; gives you many combinations of phenotypes and genotypes
Term used to refer to chromosomes in which one set comes from the male parent and one set comes from the female parent
Principle of Dominance
Mendel's second conclusion, which states that some alleles are dominant and others are recessive
Process in sexual reproduction in which male and female reproductive cells join to form a new cell
One of Mendel's principles that states that genes for a different traits can segregate independently during the formation of gametes
Situation in which one allele is not completely dominant over another allele; neither trait is dominant over another one (The characteristics blend or mix.)
Situation in which the phenotypes produced by both alleles are completely expressed; both traits are expressed together
An Austrian Monk; Breed and tested pea plants
A single pea plant can prodcue hundreds of offspring therefore it was easier for Mendel to use.
