The principles that govern heredity were discovered by a monk named Gregor Mendel in the 1860's. One of these principles, now called Mendel's law of segregation, states that allele pairs separate or segregate during gamete formation, and randomly unite at fertilization.
Segregation = the action or state of setting someone or something apart from other people or things or being set apart.
it states that allele pairs separate or segregate during gamete formation,and randomly unit at fertilization.
A monohybrid cross is a mating between two individuals with different alleles at one genetic locus of interest. The character(s) being studied in a monohybrid cross are governed by two or multiple alleles for a single locus.
