Analyze and Conclude:


1. Work a Punnett square for each of the crosses you modeled in Lab 1, 2 and 3. (Hint:
The parents were given to you in the directions of steps 1 and 2 of each lab.)

Lab#1: PP x pp Lab#2: PP x Pp Lab #3:

P P
p
p
2. According to your results in Lab 1, how many different kinds of offspring are possible
when the homozygous parents (PP and pp) are crossed? Do the results you obtained using
the bead model agree with the results shown by a Punnett square?

3. According to your results in Lab 2, what percentage of offspring are likely to be


homozygous when a homozygous parent (PP) and a heterozygous parent (Pp) are
crossed? What percentage of offspring are likely to be heterozygous? Does the model
agree with the results shown by a Punnett square?

4. According to your results in Lab 3, what different kinds of offspring are possible when
two heterozygous parents (Pp x Pp) are crossed? What percentage of each type of
offspring are likely to be produced? Does the model agree with the results of a Punnett
square?

5. In a paragraph, explain how the bead model compares with a Punnett square. How are
the two methods alike? How are the different?
