Mendel first law - factors that affect development retain their individuality from generation to generation, do not become contaminated when mixed in a hybrid, and become sorted out from one another when the next generation of gametes is formed. Synonym(s): law of segregation
Mendel second law - different hereditary factors assort independently when the gametes are formed. Synonym(s): law of independent assortment
mendelian character - an inherited character under the control of a single locus.
mendelian inheritance - inheritance in which stable and undecomposable characters controlled by a single genetic locus are transmitted over many generations. Synonym(s): alternative inheritance
