    Does GgAa x GgAa make a 9:3:3:1 cross?

    and what does Ggaa x GgAa make?



    Lets assume for both of these questions that
    G=dominant
    g=recessive

    A=dominant
    a=recessive


    THANX, DAT tomorrow and i and forgetting the most obvious details of genetics.

    Any dihybrid cross between two heterozygous traits will yield a 9:3:3:1 phenotype offspring.

    GgaaxGgAa gives you

    2 GGAa
    2 GGaa
    4 GgAa
    4 Ggaa
    2 ggAa
    2 ggaa
