Heredity II: Fur Type

This simulation can be used to test the inheritance pattern for fur type (fluffy or smooth) in a fictional organism. Females have darker coloring, while males have brighter coloring.

Click on a pair to select those phenotypes for the P generation. All P generation organisms are assumed to be true-breeding (homozygous). After selecting the P generation, F1 generation data will be displayed at the top of the page. Then, click on the F1 cross at the bottom of the simulation to produce the F2. The F2 results will be displayed at the top of the simulation. 

Worksheet and virtual lab options to accompany this simulation are available.
