What process causes gametes to have only one allele instead of two alleles for each trait like other human cells?

What process causes gametes to have only one allele since other human cells have two of each allele? MEIOSIS separates the two alleles. A pea plant which is homozygous in the dominant, axial flower allele (“A”) is crossed with a pea plant that is heterozygous in that allele.

How many alleles does a non gamete cell have?

TWO alleles

What term is used to refer to genetic traits that are governed by more than one set of genes?

What term do we use to refer to genetic traits that are governed by more than one set of genes? Polygenetic inheritance.

What is the genotype of a plant that produces green peas yellow peas are dominant?

By looking at the Punnett square, we see that there are three possible genotypes that could result from this crossing: AA, Aa, aa. The genotypes AA and Aa will result in the yellow pea phenotype because A is dominant. Only aa will produce the green pea phenotype.

Which is the dominant seed color?

Explore

Trait Dominant Expression Recessive Expression
Color of seed albumen (Y) Yellow Green
Color of flower (P) Purple White
Form of ripe pods (I) Inflated Constricted
Color of unripe pods (G) Green Yellow

What is its genotype?

In a broad sense, the term “genotype” refers to the genetic makeup of an organism; in other words, it describes an organism’s complete set of genes. In a more narrow sense, the term can be used to refer to the alleles, or variant forms of a gene, that are carried by an organism.

What is AA in genotype?

A homozygous dominant (AA) individual has a normal phenotype and no risk of abnormal offspring. A homozygous recessive individual has an abnormal phenotype and is guaranteed to pass the abnormal gene onto offspring.
