Human pedigree analysis • Human matings, like those of experimental model organisms, provide many examples of single-gene inheritance Pedigree analysis : scrutiny of medical records and matings Proband or propositus : the member of a family who first comes to the attention of the geneticist • Investigator traces the history of the phenotype through the history of the family, and draws a family tree, or pedigree, using standard symbols

Message Pedigrees of Mendelian autosomal dominant disorders show affected males and females in each generation; they also show affected men and woman transmitting the condition to equal proportions of their sons and daughters.

Autosomal polymorphisms In natural populations of organisms, a polymorphism is the coexistence of two or more common phenotypes of a character. The alternative phenotypes of a polymorphism (morphs) are often inherited as alleles of a single autosomal gene in the standard Mendelian manner. Human dimorphisms: Brown vs. blue eyes, pigmented vs. blonde hair, chin dimples vs. none, widow’s peak vs. none, attached vs. free earlobes Taste of chemical phenylthiocarbamide (PTC): foul or no taste
