Unformatted text preview: genotype of the gametes. A heterozygous male and a heterozygous female to be crossed have the genotypes of Ee and Ee . During meiosis, the allele pairs separate. A sperm cell contains either an E or an e , while the egg cell also contains either an E or an e. To continue the genetics problem, a Punnett square is used. A Punnett square is a boxed figure used to determine the probability of genotypes and phenotypes in the offspring of a genetic cross. The possible gametes produced by the female are indicated at the top of the square, while the possible gametes produced by the male are indicated at the left side of the square....
