So we're actually studying genetics in Biology and we were discussing a list of dominant traits, one of them being curly hair. Of course, I thought of Hiddles... BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE
So yeah, Hiddles and his fucking perfect curls that are just so fucking soft.
But look at his sister, Emma:
Now look at his mum:
Basing everything purely on Mendelian genetics, I guess Tom’s dad (who I’ve never seen before) has curly hair, and that one of his (Tom’s) grandparents (on the dad’s side) has straight hair.
The row with the red capital “C” and a small “c” represent’s Tom’s dad’s genes while the column with two small c’s represents Tom’s mom’s genes.
The reason why the representation of Tom’s dad’s genes here is Cc and not CC is because is you were to place that on Tom’s dad’s side on a Punnet square, all the offspring from that generation would be curly haired. Meaning Sarah, Tom, and Emma would all have curly hair.
Which isn’t the case.
Of course, I’m not yet applying the Non-Mendelian laws of inheritance, such as co-dominance, incomplete dominance, among others)
