Mendel’s Law of Segregation states that there are two alleles for every gene determining a specific characteristic, and these alleles are segregated into separate gametes during reproduction.

When the 2 different alleles occur together in one individual (heterozygote), the dominant allele will be the one that is expressed in the phenotype of the individual.

The Law of Addition is used to combine probabilities, when there are 2 or more ways to arrive at a given outcome.

The Law of Multiplication is used to combine probabilities of 2 or more different events that need to occur in combination.

Mendel’s Law of Independent Assortment says that 2 or more different genes, if found on separate chromosomes, are determined independently of each other.

Many characteristics have been found to follow patterns of inheritance that are modifications of Mendel’s rules.

xTrue-breeding plants have identicalalleles.

Gametes each contain only one allele for the flower-color gene. Every gamete produced by one parent has the same allele.

F1 hybrids have a Pp combination. Purple-flower allele is dominant, all hybrids have purple flowers.

Hybrid plants produce gametes, two alleles segregate: half the gametes receiving the P allele and the other half the p allele.

3 : 1

Punnett square: shows all possible combinations of alleles in offspring from an F1 x F1 (Pp x Pp) cross.

Each square represents an equally probable product of fertilization.

Random combination of the gametesresults in the 3:1 ratio that Mendelobserved in the F2 generation.

• Homozygous – identical alleles, true-breeding

• Heterozygous – different alleles

• Phenotype – physical appearance

• Genotype – genetic make-up

An organism displaying the dominant phenotype can eitherbe homozygous or heterozygous for the trait. A test-cross willhelp determine which.


The individual with the unknown genotype is crossed with a homozygous individual expressing the recessive trait (white flowers in this example). By observing the phenotypes of the offspring resulting from this cross, we can deduce the genotype of the purple-flowered parent.

Illustrates the inheritance of two characters

Produces four phenotypes in the F2 generation

Law of Addition - combines probabilities for mutually exclusive events

The Law of Multiplication - combines probabilities of 2 or more independent events that need to occur together

1. Codominance – two dominant alleles affect

phenotype in separate ways

– both alleles manifest– e.g. roan coloring in

horses – both red and white

2. Incomplete dominance – phenotype of offspring is

between phenotypes of two parents

– e.g. red and white parents give rise to pink offspring

3. Multiple alleles– genes with more than two

alleles that control the phenotype

– e.g. ABO blood type system has 3 alleles--A,B,i. A and B are codominant, i is recessive to both
