Mendel's law

Postby frankndalama » Mon Nov 05, 2012 10:59 am

Guys i need some help in answering the following two question.
1. what confounding problems could have occurred if Mendel had chosen another plant with exposed male and female structures.
2. provide six genetic occurrences under which Mendel's laws/results may not be observed. provide a definition and examples for each genetic occurrence

2. what comes to my mind - mitochondrial/plastidial genome, incomplete dominance, codominance etc.

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

If the experiment wasn't controlled properly the plants could cross fertilise so you might not be observing a pure F1 generation e.g. an F1 could cross with the parent plant which could change the phenotypic ratios viewed in the next generation of plants
Of course that might not be what the question wants at all..
