Crossing Pea Plants: Mendel’s Study of Single Traits

Define Mendel’s Law of Independent Assortment.

Summary Introduction

To define: The Mendel’s law of independent assortment.

Introduction: The Mendelian genetics was created by Gregor Mendel who was an Austrian monk, who worked on a pea plant to observe the pattern of inheritance of certain characters from the parent plant to the offsprings. He termed genes as factors that were passed from one generation to another. He proposed three laws, which are known as Mendel’s law of genetics.

Explanation of Solution

The law of independent assortment was given in a dihybrid cross which is the cross between the two pairs of alleles having contrasting characters. The alleles produced by each character are independent to combine with the alleles of the other character. This independent sorting of the alleles is irrespective of the dominant or the recessive trait. This is called the law of independent assortment.

The experiment performed on pea plants considering characters for the seed shape and seed color provided the law of independent assortment...
