Choose a trait that goes beyond Mendel’s one trait inheritance. Discuss the inheritance (ex. Incomplete dominance, multiple allele, polygenic,

pleiotrophy, linkage, environmental influences), the different phenotypes or anything else that deviates from simple genetics. Mendel got lucky

with the traits he chose in his pea plants. If he got more complicated traits and inheritance it would have made his findings almost impossible

to come to. Talk about how these traits would have made it hard for scientists like Mendel to figure out inheritance the way he did.
