  1. One of a pair of genes that determine a specific trait
    Allele
  2. A structure located in the nucleus of a cell, made of DNA, that contains the genetic information needed to carry out cell functions and make a new cell
    Chromosome
  3. Deoxyribonucleic acid; the material found in a cell’s nucleus, that determines the genetic traits
    of the organism
    DNA
  4. In a pair of alleles, the one that, if present, determines the trait
    Dominant Trait
  5. Segment of DNA, found on a chromosome, that determines the inheritance of a particular trait
    gene
  6. That which is generated or brought forth; offspring
    generations
  7. The study of how traits are passed from parent to offspring
    genetics
  8. The set of genes carried by an organism
    Genotype
  9. Father of genetics
    who conducted pea plant experiments to determine how traits were passed from
    one generation to the next.
    Gregor Mendel
  10. The passage of genetic instruction from one generation to the next generation
    heredity
  11. Refers to an organism that carries two different alleles for the same trait
    Hybrid or heterozygous
  12. New organism produced by a living thing
    offspring
  13. The physical appearance of an organism
    phenotype
  14. Refers to an organism that carries two dominant or two recessive alleles for a given trait
    Pure breed or heterozygous
  15. In a pair of alleles, the one that is masked in a dominant allele is present
    Recessive trait
  16. The intentional breeding of organisms with desirable traits in an attempt to produce offspring with similar desirable characteristics or with improved traits.
    selective breeding
  17. A diagram that is used to predict an outcome of a particular cross or breeding
    experiment.
    Punnett Square
  18. a cross between organisms with two different phenotypes produces offspring with a third
    phenotype in which both of the parental traits appear together
    codominance
  19. a cross between organisms with two different phenotypes produces offspring with a third
    phenotype that is a blending of the parental traits
    incomplete dominance
