    in a given population, when there are more than 1 alleles for a particular genotype
  38. Image Upload
    Multiple Alleles in Blood
  39. What is polygenes?
    Refers to the traits that result from combined expression of several genesĀ 

    ex. skin color, eye color, height, intelligence
  40. How are SCA, Huntington Disease and CF inherited?
    Mutation that makes a gene defective
  41. What is nondisjunction?
    An error which occurs during meiosis, the chromosomes are not separated properly and the resulting gametes have too many or too few chromosomes
  42. WHat is the relationship between the sex chromosomes and the sex of an individual?
    Chromosome pair #23 determines the sex of the individual
