Last, an interpretation of the data is offered within the text. 15 experiments will help you to see the relationship between science and scientific theories.

If a particular gene is found on one copy of a chromosome, it is also found on the other homolog. However, the two homologs may carry different versions of a given gene, which are called alleles. In Chapter 3, we will examine how some alleles are dominant, which mask the expression of alleles that are recessive. As an example, let’s consider a gene in humans, called OCA2, which is one of a few different genes that affect eye color. The OCA2 gene is located on chromosome 15 and comes in alleles that result in brown, green, or blue eyes.
