Interesting, this shows the probably of a child’s eye color based on the eye color of its parents!
Actually, parts of this chart are incorrect. Anyone with basic knowledge of biogenetics and punnett squares would concur.
See, it goes like this: to determine the correct probability for the eye color of the offspring, we’d have to know a few specific things besides basic eye color. We would have to know whether or not each parent’s eye color trait was homozygous dominant/recessive, or heterozygous. Which, actually, may even require an examination of the grandparent’s traits as well, to get a more defined view of the parent’s genes…
Then, using the now amended information from the parents’ to determine whether or not it’s homozygous dominant/recessive or heterozygous, we could correctly surmise an approximate probability of the offspring’s eye color.
Tl;dr, this chart is a flawed representation of how genetic probability is calculated and I love biogenetics bye.
there has never been a more accurate representation of me ever.
