BioCoach Activity

Mendelian Inheritance


This BioCoach activity will help you review the basic concepts of Mendelian genetics. It consists of two main sections:

  • Analyzing the Genetic X Files (analyzing genetic crosses)
  • Genetic X Files Problems

The first section will guide you through the analyses for a number of genetic crosses. In each case, the modes of inheritance for the genes involved will be unknown to you.

In the second section, you can analyze and interpret genetic crosses yourself to enhance your ability to solve genetics problems in your textbook or on exams.
