The transmission of traits from their parents to their offspring is: Heredity
Referring to an allele that masks the presence of another allele for the same characteristic: Dominant
Referring to a pair of alleles that are identical Homozygous
Referring to an allele that is masked by the presence of another allele for the same characteristic: Recessive
The external appearance of an organism that is determined by the individual's genotype is one's Phenotype
The genetic makeup of an organism is its Genotype
Characteristics of the species or individuals of the species such as tallness or shortness,eye color,foot length or tail length can be observed are called: Traits
Referring to a pair of alleles that are not identical Heterozygous
The number of times an event is expected to happen divided by the number of opportunities for an event to happen is Probability
The field of biology devoted to understanding how traits are passed from parents to offspring is Genetics
An alternative form of a gene is an Allele
An inheritance relationship in which one allele is completely dominant over is: Complete Dominance
The dominant trait for hair-length in hampsters is short hair (S). The recessive trait is long hair (s). Which of the following genotypes yields progeny with long hair? ss
Who is the "father of genetics?" Gregor Mendel
Pick the best defintion for "genetics" Field of Biology that is devoted to understanding how traits are transmitted from parents to offspring.
If brown hair (H) is dominant trait and blonde hair (h) is recessive trait, the genotype Hh produces what phenotype? Brown
Briefly describe an allele? Alternate form of a gene.
How many phenotypes are possible from and an incomplete dominance situation? For example, Red flowers are incompletely dominant to white flowers in Jap. 4 o'clocks. What phenotypes would be possible? What genotypes? three phenotypes... Red, white and pink. Genotypes- RR, Rw, and ww
Synonym for homozygous pure
Synonym for heterozygous hybrid
An inheritance relationship in which both alleles are different but contribute equally to the phenotype Co - dominance
An inheritance relationship in which both alleles are different but both have influence in the phenotype Incomplete Dominance
A cross dealing with only one trait monohybrid
A cross dealing with two traits dihybrid
Crossing an unknown genotype with a homozygous recessive genotype to determine the unknown genotype is called ? a testcross
