What are terms and ideas that you don’t know


Genetics definitions

Genetics Definitions

  • Genotype- Genetic make up of an organism (The alleles an organism has)

    • Ex Bb or BB

  • Phenotype- The physical characteristic of a person (What you can see)

    • Ex Brown hair, Blonde hair

  • Heterozygous- An organism that has different alleles for the same trait

    • Ex Bb

  • Homozygous- An organism that has two identical alleles for a particular trait

    • Can be Homozygous Dominant BB or Homozygous recessive bb


Genetics vocab

  • Punnet squares are tools used to determine the possibility a trait will be inherited

  • It can determine the CHANCE a specific trait will be inherited if the parents genotype for a trait is known

  • Trait is written with the First Letter of the dominant trait

  • Dominant trait is written with a capital letter

  • Recessive trait is written with a lower case letter


Genetics vocab

  • What will the genotype and phenotype ratio be a Heterozygous woman and a Homozygous Dominant Father if Brown eyes are dominant over blue eyes?

Dad's Genotype (represents sperm created in Meiosis

Genotype Ratio

1:1 BB to Bb

Phenotype Ratio

4:0 Brown eyes to Blue Eyes

Genetics vocab

  • Incomplete Dominance

  • The phenotype is a mix of the two phenotypes Ex: Red and White flowers mix

    • Alleles are written with the first letter of both Traits R and W RR= RED WW=White RW=Pink

  • Co-Dominance Both Alleles contribute to the phenotype Ex: Red and White Flowers could make splotchy Flowers

    • RR= Red WW=White RW=Splotchy


Genetics vocab

  • In four o’clock flowers The genes for red color and for white color produce a pink color. If two pink flowers are crossed what color of flowers will result?

Pink Flowers Genotype sperm created in Meiosis

Genotype Ratio

1:2:1 RR: RW:WW

Phenotype Ratio

1:2:1 RED:PINK:WHITE

Co dominance

CO-DOMINANCE

  • In cattle The genes for red (R) and for white (W) result in a speckled coat called roan. If a white cow and a roan bull what color of offspring would be predicted?

Roan Bull’s Genotype sperm created in Meiosis

White Cow’s Genotype (represents eggs created in Meiosis)

Genotype Ratio

1:1 RW:WW

Phenotype Ratio

1:1 ROAN:WHITE

Sex linked traits

Sex Linked Traits

  • Located on 23rd Chromosome

  • Males have only one X chromosome Thus all X linked alleles are expressed in males even if they are recessive

  • They do not have another X chromosome to cover the allele


Genetics vocab

  • Color blindness (Xb) is a recessive sex linked trait. The normal gene is Expressed like This (XB) Determine the sex, and % of color blind children created from a heterozygous normal mother and a color blind father

Fathers Genotype sperm created in Meiosis

50% Females

25% color blind color blind females

50 Males

25% color blind males
