11 ) Analyze and interpret data collected from probability calculations to
explain the variation of expressed traits within a population.
a. Use mathematics and computation to predict phenotypic and genotypic
ratios and percentages by constructing Punnett squares, including using both
homozygous and heterozygous allele pairs.
b. Develop and use models to demonstrate codominance, incomplete dominance,
and Mendel's laws of segregation and independent assortment.
c. Analyze and interpret data (e.g., pedigree charts, family and population
studies) regarding Mendelian and complex genetic disorders (e.g., sickle-cell
anemia, cystic fibrosis, type 2 diabetes) to determine patterns of genetic
inheritance and disease risks from both genetic and environmental factors.
