Diploidindividual with a double set of chromosomes
Fertilizationprocces of sperm and egg combination to from a zygote
Gamatesperm or egg; haploid
Genesmall segment of DNA on a chromosome that encodes a trait
Genotypegene combination controlling the expression of a phenotype
Genotypic Ratioratio of all possible combinations of alleles in an offspring
Haploidhaving one set of chromosomes; many times a gamate
Heterozygaustwo different forms of the same gene
Homologous Chromosomespair of chromosomes in a diploid individual have the same size, structure, and genetic make up
Homozygoushaving two of the same alleles
Incomplete DominanceCombination of alleles that result in a blend of the two possible physical manifestations
Meiosis special gamate producing cells reduce their cromosome number by half
