Using the Laws of Inheritance

Gregor Mendel's studies laid the foundation for modern genetics. In a series of elegant experiments, Mendel was able to deduce the most fundamental laws of single-gene and multiple-gene inheritance without having the scientific data on chromosomes, their structure, or meiotic segregation. In this lab, you will learn about and apply examples for 3 different patterns of human inheritance of traits.

In this lab, you will view information and complete activities to answer the following questions about genes and inheritance:

  • What is a Punnett Square? How can it be used to analyze possible genetic outcomes for offspring?
  • What is dominant/recessive inheritance?
  • What is X-linked inheritance?
  • What is codominant inheritance of genes?

Using the M.U.S.E. link, review the background information and animation to complete your report. Use the lab 3 worksheet for assignment instructions and data collection.

This assignment will also be assessed using additional criteria provided here.

Title: Lab to Determine the Outcome of Heredity

Exercise 1: Color Blindness

A. Choose the parental gametes, and align these in the correct positions around the Punnett square. (Type in
the correct gametes. Pink are the female gametes, and blue are the male gametes. XC is the gene for
normal vision, and Xc is the gene for color blindness.)





B. Choose the correct genotype of the progeny to fill in the Punnett square.

(Type the correct genotypes in the boxes.)















What is the genotype of the mother?


What is the genotype of the father?


What are the possible phenotypes of their

Half of the children will have


normal vision and the other half
will be color blind.

What is the probability of the color blind trait in

The probability is 50% in female

female children and the probability of the color

and 50% in male children.

blind trait in male children?
X and Y genes code for male and female gender.

Since XcY has a recessive gene

XX is female and XY is male. Why is XcY color

on the X-chromosome it is color

blind, but XcXC not color blind? Can an XcXC

blind while...
