Transcript of Heredity

Genes have different factors that make some genes more powerful than others
The stronger ones are called dominant genes
The weaker ones are called recessive genes
Dominant genes overtake recessive genes
If both parents have a recessive gene, the offspring will have a chance to have either gene show up.
Offspring will inherit both genes but only one of them will show up.
Heroic Heredity
Inherited traits are traits you inherit from your parents
Example- Eye, hair, and skin color
Acquired traits are traits that have changed your appearance or you have learned
Example -Contact lenses, tall shoes, knowing how to drive, swim, and dance
What is Heredity?
Controls what you look like, and who you got those traits and genes from
Genes are pieces of heredity that generations pass on
Parents give their offspring similar characteristics
