In this lab, you will view evidence and analyze results to answer the following questions: 

State which genes are dominant (the gene being expressed over another gene(s)) and which genes are recessive (the gene not being expressed when the dominant gene is present).
How do you know which gene is dominate and which is recessive?
Report the ratio most likely to be observed across all traits. 
Heredity of a Plant 

Using the M.U.S.E. link, review the background information and animation to complete your report. Use the Lab 2 worksheet for assignment instructions and data collection.

Gregor Mendel's studies laid the foundation for modern genetics. In a series of elegant experiments, Mendel was able to deduce the most fundamental laws of single-gene and multiple-gene inheritance without having the scientific data on chromosomes, their structure, or meiotic segregation. In this lab, you will incorporate these 2 pieces of the puzzle to interpret the experimental results that were obtained by Gregor Mendel in 1865.

Additional Requirements 

Other Requirements: You will need to write a 1- page lab report using the scientific method to answer the following questions:
•	State which genes are dominant (the genes that get expressed over the other genes) and which genes are recessive (the genes that will not be expressed when the dominant gene is present).
•	How do you know which genes are which?
•	What is the ratio that is most likely to be observed across all traits?
Using the lab animation, fill in the following data table to help you generate your hypothesis, outcomes, and analysis:
Part 2: Write a 1-page lab report using the following scientific method sections: 
•	Purpose 
o	State the purpose of the lab. 
•	Introduction 
o	This is an investigation of what is currently known about the question being asked. Use background information from credible references to write a short summary about concepts in the lab. List and cite references in APA style. 
•	Hypothesis/Predicted Outcome 
o	A hypothesis is an educated guess. Based on what you have learned and written about in the Introduction, state what you expect to be the results of the lab procedures. 
•	Methods 
o	Summarize the procedures that you used in the lab. The Methods section should also state clearly how data (numbers) were collected during the lab; this will be reported in the Results/Outcome section. 
•	Results/Outcome 
o	Provide here any results or data that were generated while doing the lab procedure. 
•	Discussion/Analysis 
o	In this section, state clearly whether you obtained the expected results, and if the outcome was as expected.
o	Note: You can use the lab data to help you discuss the results and what you learned. 
Provide references in APA format. This includes a reference list and in-text citations for references used in the Introduction section. 
Give your paper a title and number, and identify each section as specified above. Although the hypothesis will be a 1-sentence answer, the other sections will need to be paragraphs to adequately explain your experiment.
