About This Lesson

030 - Advanced Genetics

Paul Andersen explains important concepts that can not be explained by simple Mendelian genetics. He begins with a discussion of polygenic inheritance and uses a simulation on height to show how a bell shape curve of phenotypes is produced. He then discusses the importance of linked genes and those that are found on the sex chromosome. A simple punnett square showing the inheritance of the color blind gene is included.
