If pea plants with green pods were bred repeatedly with each other and they consistantly produced peas with green pods, they are said to be...?
Pure breeding for the character of green pods
1 of 5
These organisms must therefore be ___ for that particular gene?
homozygous
2 of 5
If pure breeding green-pod plants were crossed with pure breeding yellow-pod plants and all offspring turned out to be green pods, then...?
The allele for green pods must be dominant
3 of 5
State the law of segregation?
In diploid organisms, the characteristics are determined by alleles that occur in pairs. Only one of each pair of alleles can be present in a single gamete.
4 of 5
To perform a test cross what genotype must you cross the sample genotype with?
The recessive phenotype for the same characteristic.
