Definitions for **"PUNNETT SQUARE"**

a handy device (a type of diagram) for pedicting the results of a genetic cross.

A method of showing the potential offspring of two parents.

Checkerboard diagram for delineating possible outcomes of mating two individuals of defined genotype.

A pictorial method of showing the gene combinations (genotypes) of offspring that might result from an experimental genetic cross of two parents.

a cross-multiplication square that is used for determining the genetic outcome of a mating

a diagrammatic method of indicating the possible offspring produced from a particular cross

a diagram of the possible offspring which could result from parents of designated genotype

a simple graphical way of figuring out how the genes from each parent might combine to produce an offspring

a table which shows the relationship between alleles, allele frequencies and genotypes

a tool in genetics developed by British geneticist Reginald Punnett, and which biologists use to this day to predict the probability of possbile genotypes of offspring

a tool in genetics , developed by British geneticist Reginald Punnett , that biologists still use to determine the probability of an offspring expressing a particular genotype

a tool in genetics that the monk Gregor Mendel developed, and which biologists use to this day to predict the probability ofpossbile genotypes of offspring

A tool used to help predict the results of genetic crosses.

Named after Reginald C. Punnett, a method of predicting the outcome of a mating by determining what possible outcomes there can be, and how likely each one is.

a chart that shows all possible genetic outcomes of a mating.

A two-dimensional grid used to determine the possible zygotes obtainable from a mating.

the checkerboard method commonly used to determine the types of zygotes produced by a fusion of gametes from the parents; the results allow the computation of genotypic and phenotypic ratios

A simple graphical method of showing all of the potential combinations of offspring genotypes that can occur and their probability given the parental genotypes.

A tabular analysis for predicting the genotypes of the progeny resulting from a genetic cross.

A grid used as a graphic representation of the progeny zygotes resulting from different gamete fusions in a specific cross.

Used to determine the possible genotypes of future offspring by using a series of squares

The Punnett square is a diagram designed by Reginald Punnett and used by biologists to determine the probability of an offspring having a particular genotype. It is made by comparing all the possible combinations of alleles from the mother with those from the father.
