Postby kandarp shah » Sat Dec 10, 2005 2:20 am

hey, guys
i have to create my own family members specific trait pedigree including as much blood relativies as possible....not the family members tree.....it is actually going to be any specific traits that my some of the family members show when some lack that genetic trait.
i need ideas how to start building my pedigree and how to finish them. i am planning to build on genetic diseases "Osteogenesis Imperfecta"because one of my family members was died from this disease. PLEASE HELP.
thanks in advance.

I remember doing a pedigree on tongue rolling in my family. Here's an attachment to give you an idea. I used Microsoft Word to do this.

I have included a scale too and for those whose genotype I cannot deduce, I put a question mark(?).
In the attachment, you can see 3 generations, with each generation on the same level.

Well, choose your trait, then identify which of the family members exhibit it. From there, it's all textbook genetics

Well, it's rather easy. Just put your grandparents or great grand-parents, or whtevar is your first generation and then draw who with who had children, according to your family tree. Then simply write the traits next to everyone's name and you are done
