Mendel’s laws


Mendel’s laws
   1. Segregation: during meiosis only one member of each homologous chromosome pair is transferred to a specific gamete.
   2. Independent assortment: during meiosis the members of the different homologous chromosome pairs assort independently when transferred to a specific gamete, for example, AA’ and BB’ homologous chromosome pairs could give rise to AB, AB’, A’B or A’B’ possible gametes.
