- By the end of this worksheet students will be able to:
- ☑ Define ‘pure breeding line’ and differentiate between cross-pollination and self-fertilisation.
- ☑ Construct Punnett squares for a monohybrid cross and state the genotypes and phenotypes of the F1 and F2 generations, including the Mendelian ratio.
- ☑ State Mendel’s conclusions and discuss how they contributed to our current understanding of heredity.
- ☑ Describe how a test cross can be used to determine the genotype of an individual with the dominant phenotype.
