2Do Now1. How do you describe this genotype: RR? (homozygous recessive, heterozygous, etc.)2. If having hair in your ears is a dominant trait, and you have the gene combination Hh, will you have hair in your ears?3. What do you call the physical appearance that an organism shows due to it’s gene combination (the way an organism looks)?

6ReviewHaving a short middle toe is a dominant trait. Having a long middle toe is recessive. If a heterozygous male and a homozygous recessive female have a child- what is the probability that the offspring will have a long middle toe?

8Create a punnett square: A couple would like to have children- however, the husband has cystic fibrosis. Having cystic fibrosis is a recessive trait. The wife, however, does not have cystic fibrosis- but she is a carrier for the disease (she is heterozgyous). What are their chances for having a child with cystic fibrosis?

10More Genetics Terms Carrier When an individual is heterozygous (carries the disease gene), although they don’t actually have the disease (Cc).
11More Genetics Terms Pure Bred Homozygous recessive (bb) and Homozygous dominant (BB)AKA True breeders
