Autosomal Recessive Autosomal Recessive Inheritance Inheritance The recessive gene is located on 1 of the autosomes Letters used are lower case ie bb Unaffected parents (heterozygous) can produce affected offspring (if they get both recessive genes ie homozygous) Inherited by both males and females Can skip generations If both parents have the trait then all offspring will also have the trait. The parents are both homozygous. E.g. cystic fibrosis, sickle cell anaemia, thalassemia
