What is a single term to explain incomplete dominance? Blending

In pedigrees, traits can be sex-linked or ___________. Autosomal
For females to express a recessive sex-linked trait, how many alleles for that trait do they have to receive in order to display that trait? 2 copies
When dealing with a trait that is codominant, explain what a heterozygous individual will display. They will have ½ of one version and ½ the other version.
What is a genotype for heterozygous Type B blood? Bi
Can a female ever get a sex-linked recessive disorder? If no, explain why. If yes, give example of genotype. yes, XhXh
What are two methods of pre-natal testing that can be done to determine if there are chromosomal number problems? Amniocentesis and CVS (chorionic villi sampling)
What is an example of a trisomy for chromosome #21? Down syndrome
Autosomal means the chromosome pairs numbered 1-? 1-22
What little letters do we never use with blood typing? a, b
