Graphic analysis based on Jinks and Hayman [11] makes it possible to have access to the information such as average dominant degree, the ratio of distribution and dispersion of dominant and recessive alleles in parents, and the direction of dominance [4].
For those based on the inheritance of recessive alleles, it is not the presence of two mutant alleles that causes the malady, but the absence of a normal allele.
Chocolate or yellow pups can result from a breeding only if both parents carry a recessive allele at the appropriate locus.
But we have shown that the rise of the dominant allele (per generation) was four times as fast as the rise of the recessive allele (18% vs.
1 Given each parent's genetic makeup, assign an uppercase letter for a dominant allele (one that expresses a visible trait) and a lowercase letter for a recessive allele (one that is masked by a dominant trait).
The segregation of the variant (bluish) type and the normal (greenish) type was 13:27, suggesting the existence of a recessive allele at a single locus.
