Genetic X Files Problems

In this section, you can analyze genetic crosses yourself to test your understanding of genetic principles.

In essence, the genetic crosses are similar to problems you might find in a textbook or to what you might do in a laboratory. The goal in each case is to determine the number of genes involved for the traits and the mode of inheritance of each gene.

A number of questions are assigned for each cross. Once your answers are submitted, you will receive immediate feedback on the correct answers, so you can see how you did.
