After the cross you would then compare your observed results against your expected results and complete a Chi-square analysis. If the p value is determined to be greater than .05 then you would accept your null hypothesis (differences are due to random chance alone) and your genetic explanation for this trait is supported. If the p value is determined to be.05 or less then you would reject your null hypothesis — random chance alone can only explain this level of difference fewer than 1 time out of every 20 times — and your genetic explanation for this trait is unsupported. You therefore have to consider alternative factors influencing the inheritance of the mutant trait. You would repeat this cycle of prediction-hypothesis-analysis for each of your crosses in your genetic research....
