One allele for a trait is not dominant over the other
The heterozygous condition produces a phenotype in which both variations appear
Try these two
In cats when a long tailed cat is bred with a no tailed cats short tailed cats are produced. If a short tailed cat was bred with a no tailed cat, what is the likelihood that a short tailed cat would be produced? Is this incomplete or codominance?
2) Also in cats a black haired cat and a white haired cat produce a tuxedo (mix of black and white). If a two tuxedo cats were bred, what would be the likelihood of producing a white cat? Is this incomplete or codominance.

Sex Linked Traits
Traits that have a gene (allele) located on a sex-chromosome. Most traits the gene is located on the X chromosome
Since males have only one of two X chromosomes they only need one recessive gene to carry the trait.
Must include sex chromosome in cross
Examples are colorblindness and hemophilia
Sex-linked Trait example
Normal vision is dominant to colorblindness. A heterozygous (carrier) female marries a normal male.
3-2-1 Think about
List 3 human traits that seem to have a range of possible variations (rather than simply 2 or even 3 distinct variations)
Describe 2 reasons why you think traits could have a range of variations
How similar or different does your child look compared to you in terms of hair, eye, or skin color?
How could the genotypes of the child change to make them look more/less similar than you?
More than two alleles (gene variations) for a trait.
Example A B O blood types
Blood Type Donate /Receive ii O I A I B AB I B I B I B i B I A I A I A i A Antibody for: Antigen on Blood Genotype Blood Type
Blood Type Examples
A woman with O blood and man with A blood marry. Could they have a child with O blood? Could it be possible that there is no chance of having children with O blood?
A man with B blood marries a woman with AB blood. They have a child with A blood. What has to be dads genotype? Prove it.
A man with A blood (I A I A ) and woman with B blood (I B I B ) have a child. The child needs a blood transfusion. Do they need to worry about the child getting the wrong type of blood? Why or why not?
