Which of the following can be concluded from Gregor Mendel's
experiments with pea plants?
Please help. I think it would be (2) and (4) but I only have one
try left and I don't understand why I got this wrong or if those
would even be correct.
Which of the following can be concluded from Gregor Mendel's experiments with pea plants? when a homozygous dominant parent is crossed with a homozygous recessive parent, 50% of the offspring have a dominant phenotype alleles of different genes are inherited independently of each other offspring inherit two alleles per gene from each parent two recessive alleles are necessary for a recessive phenotype Incorrect. At least one of your answers is incorrect. Mendel's experiments demonstrated that alleles had unequal influence in heterozygotes, such that a dominant allele determined the phenotype. Recessive phenotypes were possible only when two recessive alleles were present. The number of dominant and recessive alleles in parental genotypes determines the possible phenotypes of offspring. Given these observations, Mendel made important deductions about how alleles separated and assorted into gametes. He inferred that each offspring must inherit one allele per parent and that different traits could be inherited independently of each other.
Right options are: 2 and 4.
*Alleles of different genes ate inherited independently
of each other.
According to the law of independent assortment, the alleles of
different genes inherit independently of each other.
* Two recessive alleles are necessary for a recessive
for example: For recessive dwarf
phenotype, the individual should have two t recessive alleles. It's
genotype is tt.
Why other option are wrong:
* Offspring inherit single allele from each parent.
*When a homozygous dominant parent is crossed with homozygous
recessive parent, then all individual have dominant phenotype.
Parents: TT (tall) × Dwarf (tt)
