Given those conditions, the offspring have a 50% chance of demonstrating the dominant phenotype and a 50% chance of demonstrating the recessive phenotype.

What is the probaility that the offspring of a homozygous dominant individual and a homozygous recessive individual will exhibit the dominant phenotype?

100 percent.


What is the percentage of offspring that will exhibit the dominant trait from A crossing of A homozygous dominant and homozygous recessive individual?

The homozygous dominant individual can only pass on the dominant allele and the homozygous recessive individual can only pass on the recessive allele, therefore all offspring will be heterozygous and have the dominant phenotype.


In crossing a homozygous recessive with a heterozygote what is the chance of getting a homozygous recessive phenotype in the F1 generation?

1/2 or 50%. The homozygous recessive gentoype contains two recessive alleles for the gene for a trait. So the homozygous recessive individual can pass on only recessive alleles to an offspring. The heterozygous individual has one dominant and one recessive allele for the gene for a trait. So the heterozygous individual can pass on either a dominant or a recessive allele to an offspring. So if an offspring inherits a recessive allele from the heterozygous parent, along with the recessive allele from the homozygous recessive parent, it will have the homozygous recessive genotype and phenotype.


What is the ONLY genotype that can produce a recessive phenotype?

Only a homozygous recessive individual will have the phenotype created by two recessive alleles.Since the term produce might indicate the production of offspring parents that can only produce offspring with a recessive phenotype must both have homozygous recessive genotypes.


What is the probabilty that the offspring of a homozygous domiant idiviual and a homozygous recessive indiviual will exbhit the domaint phenotype?

If one parent is homozygous dominant (AA) and the other parent is homozygous recessive (aa), all offspring will inherit one dominant allele and display the dominant phenotype. Therefore, the probability of their offspring exhibiting the dominant phenotype is 100%.


How would a recessive trait show up in a cross between two individuals with a dominant phenotype?

If both the individuals are heterozygous dominant then the probability of recessive (homozygous) phenotypic offspring would be 1:4


If dad has freckles and is homozygous and mom has freckles and is heterozygous what phenotypes and genotypes can you expect their offspring?

Alright, I suppose I will do your homework for you.. Here is your punnet square: F F F FF FF f Ff ff Therefore, 3/4, or 75%, offspring will have the phenotype of having freckles, and 1/4, or 25% will have the phenotype of no freckles. And 2/4, or 50%, of the offspring will have the genotype for homozygous for freckles, 1/4, or 25%, of the offspring will carry a heterozygous trait for freckles, and 1/4, or 25%, of the offspring will have the phenotype for homozygous no freckles.


What is the name for a cross between an individual of unknown genotype and a homozygous recessive?

A cross between a homozygous recessive and an individual of unknown genotype is called a test cross.The homozygous recessive can only pass on a recessive allele to the offspring, and so any recessive in the other parent will show up in the phenotype (detectable characteristics) of some of the offspring.


Breeding an individual of dominant phenotype with a homozygous recessive individual to determine the individuals genotype?

What is the result of a cross between an individual who is homozygous dominant and another who is homozygous recessive for a trait?

All the offspring will be heterozygous with a phenotype showing the dominant trait. Let the alleles be H (dominant) and h (recessive). All the gametes from the first individual will be H, and from the other, h. Thus all the offspring must be Hh.


What describes organisms or genotypes that are homozygous for a specific trait that always produce offspring of the same phenotype?

Yes, homozygous with homozygous (both the same genotype) will produce homozygous of the same genotype


What was the phenotype of the offspring that did not share of the parents phenotype?

If both parents have the same phenotype, but the offspring did not share that phenotype, then it is likely that the parents have a dominant phenotype, but the offspring has a recessive phenotype, which means that the offpring's genotype would be homozygous recessive, and it's parents' genotypes would be heterozygous. For example, the parents may both have the genotype Bb, which gives them black fur. Approximately 25% of their offspring should have the genotype bb, which gives them the phenotype of white fur.
