You are looking at four purple flowers. What are their phenotypes and genotypes? Phenotype is purple and just by looking you could not tell their genotypes but it could be PP or Pp is when you select plants or animals with the most desired traits to breed for the next generation. 40. is when a normal allele is placed into a virus, which delivers it when it infects its targetcells.Selective breedingGene therapy</p></li><li><p>41. Name traits that are a result of polygenic inheritance. human height, human eye color, human skin color, human hair color, grain color in wheat, milk production in cows, egg production in chickens42. Why was Mendels predictions for dominant and recessive traits so accurate? He worked with a large number of plants (over 30,000) and concentrated on one trait at a time and he kept a record of the results. 43. How can Punnett Squares predict results of crossbreeding in plants? It shows all the ways in which alleles for a particular trait can be combined</p></li><li><p>44. How many crosses of red and white four-oclock flowers would you need to find out all the possible phenotypes for color of flowers? You would need 2, the first cross would be red with white and the second cross would be pink with pink which would give you red, white and pink phenotypes45.
