Genes are passed from parents to their offspring. 2) In cases in which two or more forms (alleles) of the gene for a single trait exist, some forms of the gene may be dominants and others may be recessive. 3 ) In most sexually reproducing organisms, each adult has two copies of each gene- one from each parent. These genes are segregated from each other when gametes are formed. 4) The alleles for different genes usually segregate independently of one another. 12.
