Carrier an individual that carries one gene for a recessive trait. A carrier does not express that trait, but when mated with another can produce offspring that do.
Chromosome a thread-like strand in the nucleus that controls the cell activity and carries the genetic material to pass traits to offspring.
Co-dominant 2 alleles of a gene pair in a heterozygote that are both fully expressed.
Dominant Gene strong form a a gene, which is expressed even if a recessive gene is present.
Gamete sex cell
Gene a unit of genetic material that determines a trait.
Genetics the scietific study of genes/inheritance.
Heredity the pasing of physical characteristics from parent to child.

Mutation a change in DNA or chromosomes
Pedigree a line of anchstors; visual representation.
Phenotype The actual characteristics that an organism demonstrates
Polygenic a trait that requires more than one gene
Probability The percent chance of inheriting a trait
Punnet Square a visual diagram that demonstrates the possible genotypes person could inherit from the parents.
Pure bred having 2 of the same alleles. (also known as homozygous)
