Review of Lecture 16: The Monk's Peas: Mendelian Genetics.


1. Gregor Johann Mendel: first to discover the principles of inheritance; worked with garden peas (seed shape (round vs wrinkled); seed color (yellow vs green); pod color (green vs yellow); pod shape (inflated vs pinched); height (tall vs short); flower placement (axial vs terminal)

2. Mendel's law of segregation: alleles separate during gamete formation

3. Dominant vs recessive alleles

4. Homozygous vs heterozygous

5. Phenotype vs genotype

6. Monohybrid vs dihybrid cross

7. Punnett square; probability and predictability
