Learning Goals: to predict  and then calculate through experimentation the results of genetic crosses using one and two traits, to perform a testcross to determine the genotype of an unknown individual. Perform a chi square analysis of your data to determine if your data is a good fit.

Key Concepts: Mendel’s laws of inheritance, sexual reproduction, Punnett squares, testcross, homozygous vs. heterozygous, F1 and F2 generations, phenotype vs. genotype, chi square analysis
