Polygenic Inheritance refers to inheritance of a phenotypic characteristic (trait) that is attributable to two or more genes and their interaction with the environment many traits are not controlled by a single gene pair but by many genes interacting with each other and also with the environment Multiple Alleles: one gene, multiple versions Polygenic: multiple genes Polygenic Inheritance Many traits – skin color, height, etc.
produces more of a bell curve – a continuous distribution of traits Polygenic Inheritance

Polygenic Inheritance Environmental Effects!
Environmental Effects! Siamese Cats – coat color enzyme only active at low temperatures – affects color at tips of nose, ears, tail, feet. Identical twins – in utero – one twin experiences a slightly different environment that the other – this affects some traits, including their fingerprints – Identical DNA – different fingerprints...
