Science Vocab Test

This is a StudyStack for the Genetics Vocab Test

TermDefinition
heredity the passing of trait from parent to offspring
allel alternate form that a gene may have, can be dominant or recessive
genetic the study of how traits are inherited through the action of alleles
hybrid an offspring that was given different information for a trait from each parent
dominant describes a trait that covers over, or dominates by another form of that trait
recessive describes a trait that is covered over or dominated by another form of that trait and stem to disappear
punnet square a tool to predict the probability of certain traits in offspring that shows the different way alleles can combine
genotype genetic makeup of an organism
phenotype outward physical appearance and behavior of an organism as a result of its genotype
homozygous describes an organism with two alleles that are the same for a trait
herterzygous describes an organism with two different alleles for a trait
incomplete dominance production of a phenotype that is intermingled between two homologous parents
poly genetic inheritance occurs when a group pairs acts together and produces a specific trait, such as human eye color, skin color, and height
sex-linked gene an allele inherited on a sex chromosome and that can cause human genetic disorders such as blindness or hemophilia
genetic engineering biological and chemical methods to change the arrangements of gene DNA to improve crop production, produce large volumes of medicine, and changes how cells preform their normal functions.
