I am an awesome tongue roller! (Probably Homozygous dominant = TT)
Punnett Square Practice Problems:
1) Link #1
2) Link #2
3) Link #3
Heterozygous means mixed letter..... like "Tt" or "Ss"
Homozygous means same letter.... "TT" or "ss"
There are two kinds of Homozygous......
If you have two large letters you are Homozygous Dominant "TT" etc.
If you have two small letter allels you are homozygous recessive "tt" etc.
Two more words....
Genotype means your genetic make up like TT or Tt. You are talking about the alleles or genes.
Phenotype is the actual outcome of the gene. "Tongue roller" or "Blue Eyes". It is what you see expressed.
Best of luck!!

The recent genetics vocabulary quiz included the following terms:
Characteristic, traits, offspring, asexual reproduction, sexual reproduction, clone, mutation, chromosome, DNA
Some of you didn't do as well as I would have liked. Plese see me to try it once again to prove you know those terms!
Thanks! Mr. F :-)

Do you think that human cloning should be allowed? Why is this an ethical dilemma?
