- 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
