What is the purpose of mendels experiments with dihybrid crosses?

He wanted to determine if traits affected each other, and concluded  (based on his observations) that they did not.    Today we can't be that sure because Mendel had the (MORE)

A dihybrid cross produces the ratio of?

It depends on the genotypes of the parents. The most common type used is a cross between two heterozygotes, such as RrDd X RrDd, this results in a pheotypic ratio of 9:3:3:1 (MORE)

How is a dihybrid cross different from a punnett square?

A punnett square is the diagram used to determine the expected genotypic ratios for the offspring. A dihybrid cross is a cross involving two different traits. For example Rr (MORE)
