Selecting plants or animals with the most desired traits to breed for the next generation.
You are looking at four T all pea plants. What are their phenotypes and genotypes? genotype(s):_________________ phenotype(s): _______________
You are looking at four T all pea plants. What are their phenotypes and genotypes? genotype(s):TT OR Tt phenotype(s): TALL Genotype =genetic makeup Phenotype=what you can physically see
What possible geno types will the offspring have if the parents' blood types are O and AB?
What possible geno types will the offspring have if the parents' blood types are O and AB? O O A AO AO B BO BO Remember the GENOTYPE is the GENETIC makeup so the GENOTYPES are the possible outcomes that are represented by the PAIRS of ALLELES in the Punnett square. GENOTYPES: AO, BO
Mendel called plants that received different alleles for a trait from each parent ____.
Mendel called plants that received different alleles for a trait from each parent a HYBRID . This car is a HYBRID of a gasoline and an electric car.
Blood type in humans is controlled by ____ alleles .
Blood type in humans is controlled by THREE alleles . (A, B, O ) These combination of alleles gives us 4 different phenotypes of blood. (A,B,AB,O) They also give us 6 different Genotypes (AA,AO,BB,BO,AB,OO)
In a Punnett square, a capital letter stands for a ____ allele.
In a Punnett square, a capital letter stands for a DOMINANT allele
polygenic inheritance: when more than two alleles control a trait Traits that are affected by more than one gene are called polygenic traits . The genes that affect a polygenic trait may be closely linked on a chromosome, unlinked on a chromosome, or on different chromosomes. Polygenic traits are often difficult for geneticists to track because the polygenic trait may have many alleles. Also, independent assortment ensures the genes combine differently in gametes. Therefore, many different intermediate phenotypes exist in offspring. Eye color ( Figure below ), and skin color are examples of polygenic traits in humans. Eye color and skin color are examples of polygenic traits; they are influenced by more than one gene.
Homozygous: when there are two alleles that are exactly the same
KNOW how to do Punnett squares! KNOW your vocab! (especially homozygous, heterozygous, genotype, and phenotype) if you don’t KNOW these words you will NOT do well on the test. Do your BEST! There are not many grade opportunities left! Make your Mama PROUD!
