Mendel's principle of segregation implies that the two members of an allelic pair of genes
Answer : The correct answer for the blank is-
The two members of an allelic pair of genes are separated from one another during gamete formation.
According to Mendel's law of segregation, during formation of reproductive cells (gametes such as sperms and eggs) in sexually reproducing organisms, variants of a gene (alleles) are separated from one another so that every gamete carries single allele for the trait.
This law is also known as law of purity of gamete.
Mendel's principle of segregation implies that the two members of an allelic pair of genes are distributed to separate gametes.
Mendel's principle of segregation is a principle of hereditary that was discovered by Gregor Mendel in the 1860s. The principle states that during gamete formation, the allele pairs for each genes separate (segregate) from each other and independently unite at fertilization. It explains that in eukaryotes, the separation of the allele pairs of genes occurs during meiosis and it result in the production of gametes (reproductive cells).
