1. Strategy to distinguish between a phenotype that results from codominance relative to
Incomplete dominance occurs when the effects of recessive alleles can be
detected to some extent in heterozygot
Lecture 12: Inheritance in Populations
You will get more gold from this lecture if you come prepared by looking over the following Sections in
Biology: Exploring the Diversity of Life, 2nd Ed.
i) Chapter 10, "Mendel Genes and Inheritance".
Look at Section
Meiosis and Sexual Reproduction
-meiosis is really all about sexual reproduction, each parent passes on half of his or
her DNA to each child
-sexual reproduction requires the fusion of one sperm and one ovum to produce a
-gametes are produced
