Dihybrid Crosses. Mendel’s Peas. In addition to Mendel’s monohybrid cross experiments, he also studied the probability of inheriting 2 separate traits Example: Seed colour and seed shape Seeds can be green or yellow; they can also be wrinkled or smooth
Yellow seeds = Y Green seeds = y
Round seeds = R Wrinkled seeds = r
If a pea plant is heterozygous for both traits, how many different sex cells can it produce?
If 2 plants, heterozygous for both traits are crossed, what types of offspring are possible?
