Understand Mendel’s Law, including the paired nature of genetic factors, dominance and recessiveness, random segregation, and the difference between phenotypes and genotypes, between the terms homozygous and heterozygous. D. Know the human traits used as examples and the mechanism of inheritance of each (ie. Are they autosomal dominant or autosomal recessive (or sex-linked recessive) -- See Appendix II and list on website). E. Be able to solve Mendelian genetics problems such as those in the manual and on the website. Be able to predict the probability of obtaining certain outcomes in genetics crosses using the product rule and the addition rule. Section II: The Chromosomal Basis of Inheritance A. Understand the basic terminology of chromosomes, including chromatids, homologous
