Complex Patterns of Inheritance
By: Jahlei Jones
Definition: a genetic situation in which one allele does not completely dominate another allele, and therefore results in a new phenotype.
Offspring phenotype:It will be a mix between the two parents.
1)A snapdragon flower that is pink as a result of cross-pollination between a red flower and a white flower when neither the white or the red alleles are dominant.
2)A child with wavy hair as a result of one parent's curly hair and the other's straight hair.
Definition:a relationship between two versions of a gene.
Offspring phenotype: Both parents traits will be seen in the off spring
1) A Red flower and a white flower will create a red and white spotted flower.
2)A white chicken and a black chicken will create a chicken that is checkered with white and black.
