A __ __ __ __ __ __ has genes that are different for a trait, such as Tt. 38 31 53 5. The actual gene makeup of an organism is its __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ . 18 58 48 6. __ __ __ __ __ __ are physical characteristics of an organism that are passed down from one generation to 54 51 the next. 7. __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ is a condition in which neither of the two 13 4 12 genes in a gene pair masks the other. 8. __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ are rod-shaped structures found in the nucleus of every cell in an organism. 57 20 46 9. A __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ trait is expressed when two different genes for the same trait are present. 6 10. The physical appearance of a trait is called the __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ . 14 52 32 11.
