Research note: Colour used to show changes when colors discussed. Also the use of color -- how else could this be enhanced? Any ideas about infolinks? Links to glossaries -- are these the best way to do online presentation of glossaries? Would this be better as a soundbyte that you hear when you click on it? Or what about a video in some cases? Here we have also indented the text to make sure its not too close to the edge of the screen for reading. Can we manage this with style sheets?

College of Cat Genetics: Part VIII
by Patricia Turner

Exercise Answer

 
Exercise:  Using the gene pairs black & brown and full color & Siamese, recreate the chart above.
 
 
Number of Cats Coat Color Color Intensity
black full color
black Siamese
(Seal Point)
brown full color
brown Siamese
(Chocolate Point)
The most cats will show the double dominant and therefore they will be take black from the first gene pair and full colour from the second gene pair.  The fewest cats will show the double recessive as the kittens must have both recessives from the two gene pairs.
