Mendel's genetics

genetics the study of inheritance
allele alternate forms of a gene
dominant the form of a trait that is visible whether homozygous or heterozygous
recessive the form of a trait that is only visible when inherited from both parents
homozygous both alleles for a trait are the same
heterozygous both alleles for a trait are different
genotype the actual allele pair for a trait
phenotype what a trait looks like
law of segregation two alleles for a trait separate during meiosis and end up in different gametes
law of independent assortment there is a random distribution of alleles during gamete formation. genes on different chromosomes line up independently of each other.
hybrid heterozygous organisms
