Mendel’s first law: The law of equal segregation. Between 1856 and 1863, he cultivated and tested some 29,000 pea plants. The two members of a gene pair (alleles) segregate from each other during meiosis; each gamete has an equal probability of obtaining either member of the gene pair Gregor Mendel

Terminology Zygote: a fertilized egg, the first cell that develops into progeny individual Homozygote: an individual with a pair of identical alleles Heterozygote: an individual in which the alleles differ Monohybrid: refers to an individual heterozygous for one gene Individuals may be classified as… •Homozygous dominant : both alleles dominant (Y/Y) •Heterozygous: one dominant and one recessive (Y/y) •Homozygous recessive: both alleles recessive (y/y) …at a given locus Genotypes: allelic combinations that underlie phenotypes

Do you think Mendel was lucky? More likely, he screened a great many more traits that did not conform to these patterns!
