Genetic Crosses

Today, geneticists rely on Mendel's work to predict the likely outcome of genetic crosses. In this section, you will learn how to predict the probable genetic makeup and appearance of offspring resulting from specified crosses.

The flower color genotype of the pea plant on the left is pp.The plant's phenotype is white flowers. The flower color phenotype of the pea plant on the right is purple flowers. The plant's genotype is either Pp or PP.
