What were traits mendel observed about pea plants.
how did Mendel control breeding and track inheritance of traits
what are the male reproductive parts of a flower?
What are the female reproductive parts of a flower called?
true breeding parents of the crossing
offspring of p generation, to collect seeds
offspring of seeds produced from original p generation
Law of independent assortment
factors separate independently from one another during formation of gametes
study of the structure and function of chromosomes and genes
two or more alternative forms of a gene
genetic makeup of an organism
appearence of an organism
used to predict outcome of genetic crosses
a cross which one characteristic is tracked
both recessive traits
both dominant traits
split traits both dominant and recessive
happens when Hetero and Homozy. individuals are individuals in phenotype
occurs when 2 or more alleles influence phenotype and results in a phenotype intermediate b/w dominant and recessive trait.
occurs when both alleles for gene are expressed in heterozygous offspring
a cross where 2 characteristics are tracked.
