Ex) brown hair, blue eyes, freckles, dominant - this trait is always expressed; "wins" over the others, recessive - this trait is only expressed when both alleles are present, offspring - new organisms produced from a living thing, gametes - reproductive cells; sperm and egg cells, karyotype - a map of your chromosomes, punnett square - the boxes used to predict the offspring's genotypes, Mendel - Father of Genetics,
