1. The color does not skip a generation.
2. On the average a relatively large number of
the progeny are affected.
3. Only affected individuals carry the color.
4. With color of this sort, there is less danger
of continuing undesirable color in a strain, than is the case with recessive
5. The breeding formula for each individual is
1. The color may skip one or more generations.
2. On the average a relatively small percentage
of the individuals in the strain carry the color.
3. Only those which carry a pair of genes for
that color (exhibit it).
4. Those carrying only one gene can be seen only
by mating, hence there is much more danger of accidentally contaminating
the strain than is the case with dominant color.
5. The color must come from both sides of the
Homozygous is an animal carrying the same form
of a gene such as E E. Hetrozygousity is an animal that carries two different
