  • 1. Vocabulary Review GENETICS
  • 2. Study of how characteristics are transmitted from parent to offspring GENETICS
  • 3. The father of genetics GREGOR MENDEL
  • 4. Physical feature determined by the genotype PHENOTYPE
  • 5. Plant used by Mendel for his hereditary studies GARDEN PEAS
  • 6. Transmission of characteristics from parent to offspring HEREDITY
  • 7. A genetically determined characteristic TRAIT
  • 8. Stronger of two alleles that shows up most often DOMINANT
  • 9. Transferring pollen grains from anthers to the stigma of flowers POLLINATION
  • 10. How garden peas are pollinated SELF POLLINATION
  • 11. Female part of a flower STIGMA
  • 12. Having identical alleles (AA or aa) HOMOZYGOUS
  • 13. Another term for a heterozygous genotype HYBRID
  • 14. Law stating that a pair of alleles will separate whenever gametes are formed LAW OF SEGREGATION
  • 15. F 1 Dihybrid phenotypic ratio 9:3:3:1
  • 16. A genotype having one dominant and one recessive allele HETEROZYGOUS
  • 17. Law stating that alleles separate independently of each other when sperm and eggs are formed LAW OF INDEPENDENT ASSORTMENT

  • 23. Two forms of a gene ALLELES
  • 24. Instructions on DNA that code for specific proteins or traits GENES
  • 25. The weaker of two alleles in a pair that is often masked by the dominant allele RECESSIVE
  • 26. Gene combination in the offspring GENOTYPE
  • 27. Dominance that occurs whenever both alleles for a trait are expressed CODOMINANCE
  • 28. Type of genetics that studies the genes and chromosomes of an organism MOLECULAR GENETICS

  • 30. What Mendel called alleles in his experiments with pea plants FACTORS
  • 31. The likelihood that an event will occur like tossing heads or tails on a coin PROBABILITY
  • 32. Cross involving two traits DIHYBRID
  • 33. Dominance that occurs whenever the hybrid genotype produces a new, intermediate phenotype INCOMPLETE DOMINANCE
