A multicellular organism

A multicellular organism develops from a single zygote, and its phenotype depends
on its genotype, which is established at fertilization. As a basis for understanding
this concept:
a. Students know how to predict the probable outcome of phenotypes in a genetic
cross from the genotypes of the parents and mode of inheritance (autosomal or
X-linked, dominant or recessive).
b. Students know the genetic basis for Mendel’s laws of segregation and independent
c.* Students know how to predict the probable mode of inheritance from a pedigree
diagram showing phenotypes.
d.* Students know how to use data on frequency of recombination at meiosis to estimate
genetic distances between loci and to interpret genetic maps of chromosomes.
