The Punnett square is a square diagram that is used to predict the genotypes of a particular cross or breeding experiment.
It is named after Reginald C. Punnett.
The diagram is used by biologists to determine the probability of an offspring having a particular genotype.
A monohybrid cross is a breeding experiment between P generation (parental generation) organisms that differ in a single given trait. The P generation organisms are homozygous for the given trait.
Dihybrid cross is a cross between two different lines/genes that differ in two observed traits. According to Mendel's statement, between the alleles of both these loci there is a relationship of completely dominant - recessive traits.
Examples of Dominant vs Recessive Genes
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
Sequence of a gene's DNA that transcribes into protein structures
Physical genetic expression
Internal genetic expression
Variation of a genetic trait
a Sex cell
Conversion of the information encoded in a gene first into messenger RNA and then to a protein
Calico cats are almost always female because the locus of the gene for the orange/non-orange coloring is on the X chromosome.
