Segregation of alleles
You probably already know about segregation of alleles and assortment of non-alleles (the topics of this chapter and the next) from an undergraduate course in general genetics. I assume that you also know about the behaviour of chromosomes during mitosis, meiosis and fertilisation and that you know genes are carried on chromosomes. What I am assuming you do not know enough about and want to know more about is the probability and statistical aspects of the principles of trans-mission genetics, for these are the aspects that are most often slighted in a first course and yet these are the aspects you now need to know more about if you are carrying out breeding experiments with laboratory animals and are planning to publish your results in the scientific literature.
