Acid rain is a very big pollution problem in the world. It has killed fish and other aquatic life in many lakes and streams. It harms human health, disfigures monuments and erodes buildings, and, along with other pollutants, threatens forests. The st
One of the best ways to predict the outcome of a passed on cross is by drawing a simple
diagram known as a punnett square.
A test cross is a cross in which one parent shows the dominant phenotype, but its
genotype for that trait is not known (c
roughly of the f2 plants showed the trait controlled by the
Every one capital letter represents a dominant allele. (ex, t = tall)
A gene pair will therefore be homozygous or heterozygous.
Dominant and also recessive alleles
For example, a gene
Use a punnett square or the foil method to determine if parents with type a and also type
b blood can have a child with type o blood.
What do the letters on the sides of the punnett square stand also for? The letters in the
center of a squa
Probability of Genetics
To see the expected ratios appear in reality you may have to flip the coin many times.
The same is true of passed ons.
Probabilities predict the average outcome of a large number of events.
The larger the number of the next generat
Every one gamete therefore carries only 1 allele for every one gene.
(cross with itself), to create the f2 (second filial) generation.
In order to figure out how the recessive alleles had disappeared,
We use letters to represent alleles.
Use the s
What is the fraction (or percent) of the next generation in the f2 generation which are
round and also yellow?9/16
Based on the two-factor crosses shown above, answer the following questions.
In order to figure out whether the segregation of
Summary of mendels principles:
In codominance, phenotypes produced by both alleles are clearly expressed. The
heterozygous individual does not show a blend, rather it shows both dominant alleles
Every one homolog contains the same inheritable factor, so a gene pair exists for every
one gene on the chromosome.
Think back to meiosis and also mitosis!
Inheritable factor and also alleles
For example, one stock of mendels seeds produced on
the not the same forms of a gene
Mendel studied 7 not the same individual characteristics of pea plants.
These plants were true breeding meaning that they were self-pollinating and also would
produce the next generation identical to themselves fo

The role of fertilization
In peas, like many other flowering plants, the zygote develops into a tiny embryo encased
within a seed. (these are the peas!)
introduction to passed ons
Mendel carried out his work with ordinary garden peas.
