Review EPISTASIS describes gene-gene interactions in which an allele at one locus can “override” an allele at another. Epistatic alleles can be RECESSIVE or DOMINANT . Another gene-gene interaction is SUPPRESSION which describes the ability of a mutant allele at one locus to compensate for the defect in a mutant allele at another locus. Gene-gene interactions can create lethal phenotypes called SYNTHETIC LETHALS . PENETRANCE and EXPRESSIVITY describe the proportion of a population expressing the phenotype of a given genotype, and the degree

Independent Assortment Review F1: A/a;B/b Possible gametes: AB Ab aB ab Parents: A/A;B/B X a/a;b/b note: parent 1 has only big alleles and parent 2 has only little alleles Gametes with only big or only small alleles are called nonrecombinant (or parental ). Gametes with both big and small alleles are called recombinant .
