Part II: Inheritance
Pick one dominant or recessive trait found in your family. Do a web search for dominant/recessive human traits, keep in mind that most of our traits are not controlled in a simple dominant/recessive manner.
Answer the following questions:
What is your phenotype for this trait?
What is your likely genotype for this trait?
What are your parents/siblings and/or (if you have) children’s phenotypes for this trait?
Show a likely/potential Punnett Square for this trait in your family.
If you are adopted or otherwise do not know the phenotype of one or both of your parents (or potential kids) for this trait, you can make up an example.
