The founder of Genetics
The green pea is more dominant(428) than the yellow(152)
The round peas are more dominant (5,474) than the angular (1,850)
The long stem is more dominant (787) than the short stem (277) This data shows that different traits are more dominant than other traits. Also that some traits are more common to show than others.
Scientists didn’t react to him very much at all while he was still alive everyone pretty much ignored his ideas until 35 years after he died. Than his ideas and studies became very commonly used.
Definition: Gene that will overpower another gene.
Example: If you have a green and a yellow trait for peas then they will be yellow because it’s more dominant.
Definition: Gene that gets covered-up by a dominant gene.
Example: The green pea is recessive to the yellow and unless there is 2 greens then the pea will always be yellow
Definition: Gene that is nether.Example: If you have a gene that is co-dominant then if you might end up with a mix of the two. Like if both green and yellow pea plants were co-dominant than you might get some green and some yellow plants.
