Genetics Generator

“In class we learned about phenotypes, genotypes, alleles, genetics, homozygous, and heterozygous. We had a project about it and had to draw a face. The facial features were based on alleles. We drew different alleles out of multiple paper bags, like gender and the other face features. The alleles would be capital or lowercase letters, like Aa or AA or aa. For example, AAbb would be red hair, the capital letters are the dominant features and the lowercase letters are recessive.   From this project and lesson we have learned that sometimes genetics don’t blend and sometimes some alleles don’t show. Here are the faces we drew in class!”
