Mendelian Inheritance

In this simulation you will get to know the principles of Mendelian inheritance.

About This Simulation

In this simulation you will get to know the principles of Mendelian inheritance. You will learn how Mendel’s postulates can be applied in order to determine how characteristics are passed on from one generation to the next. You will also learn what inheritance looks like on a molecular level. Can you find out if Joseph’s children will inherit his color blindness?
