Practice: Codominance and Incomplete Dominance


1. Practice setting up keys for the phenotypes listed in each set. Remember that the "medium" trait must always be heterozygous.

a) Eggplants can be deep purple, white, or a light violet color.

b) Flowers can be white, pink, or red.

c) A Hoo can have curly hair, spiked hair, or a mix of both curly and spiked.

d) A Sneech can be tall, medium, or short.

e) A Bleexo can be spotted, black, or white.


2. Now, can you figure out in the above list, which of the letters represent codominant traits and which are incomplete.

Codominant _____________ Incompletely Dominant ________________
