Homework Help: Human Biology-Birth Defects

Posted by Matt on Saturday, May 3, 2008 at 10:25am.

Hey I'm doing a report on clubfoot and I just researched this about it:

"Complex segregation analyses suggest that
the most likely inheritance pattern is a single gene of
major effect, operating against a polygenic background."

what does it mean by "operating against a polygenetic background"?

Thanks!
