- Inheritance of biological characteristics is determined by

genes, which are passed from parents to their offspring

- In cases of two or more forms (alleles) of the gene for a

single trait exist some forms of the gene may be dominant and

others may be recessive

- Most sexually reproducing organisms, each adult has two copies

of each gene-one from each parent. These genes are segregated from

each other when gametes are formed

- The alleles for different genese usually segregate

independently of one another
