More Mice with Fangs: Intermediate Punnett Squares

Quick Recap of Genetics Vocab

We'll be talking about a recessive allele called vam37 that causes housemice to develop vampire-like fangs (just try to prove that this doesn't exist). Below are the icons I'll use to represent the alleles, genotypes, and phenotypes, based on the idea that the choice between 2 alleles is sort of like flipping a coin:

There are 2 alleles and ,

which are arranged in 3 possible genotypes , ,and ,

which yield 2 possible phenotypes and
