Tutor description

One of the first steps used to study how traits are inherited is to design a key. Using the letters of the alphabet, simply select a letter to symbolize the trait you are investigating. For example, you might want to use the letter “n” to symbolize the length of the dragon’s neck. Remember that each trait is expressed independently, unless it happens to be connected or linked to another trait, such as in the case of a sex-linked gene. The sample key below shows some typical genetic traits or characteristics of dragons.
