If you did not know whether brown or yellow alleles were dominant in corn, how could you tell with reasonable certainty? If you used a punette square to find out which one is dominant, how would you know which letters to use for each parent to figure out the F1 generation?

  • Science - biology -

    If the two genes are in the same allele, both parents are heterozygous, and the genes are either dominant or recessive, then about 25% of F1 generation will show recessive phenotype and 75% will show the dominant phenotype.

    Homozygous = BB or YY

    Heterozygous = BY

    Once you find out which is dominant and which is recessive, use a lower case letter to indicate the recessive gene.
