Genetics Through the Ages
By: KellyJohn Murray
Who discovered Genetics and how did he do this?
Gregor Mende discovered genetics. He studied pea plants and made two important innovations to the genetics community. *Developed pure lines*Counted his results and kept statistical notes
An allele that produces the same phenotype whether its paired allele is identical or different
An allele that produces its characteristic phenotype only when its paired allele is identical
Two different alleles for a trait.
Two identical alleles for the same trait
The genetic constructution of an individual organism.
The physical attributes of an organism
The phenotype of a plant is taken from both parents equally. A white and red flower combining to create a pink flower is an exelent example of incomplete dominance.
Both alleles are expressed eqaually. An example would be spotted cows.
Multiple Alleles and their uses
Multiple alleles are an inheritence pattern. Multiple alleles are used to determine blood types. An example is Type A blood who's genotype is iAi.
