|MadSci Network: Genetics|
i have more insight below on this matter... For more detail i would like to know the answer to this question below.. If a newly-wed couple both have brown-eyes and they're homozygous and the couple's parents all have brown-eyes and are homozygous and all the grandparents all have brown-eyes and are probably homozygous can the newly-wed couple produce a child with blue eyes even though both of the couple's families all have brown-eyes as dominant and are probably homozygous ? if the child can have blue-eyes, what are the chances/odds ? ---What does it mean to be homozygous ? if 2 grandparents are both homozygous, are their children and grandchildren homozygous too ? - what does homozygous have to do with purebred ? can 2 families(grandparents then children then grandchildren) who are homozygous (with regards to brown-eyes) produce children with blue-eyes ? i would really appreciate it if i could get some help on this matter, it is confusing for me, thanks
