Mice with Fangs: Intro to Punnett Squares

Example: Mr. Spock + Nurse Chapel

One more here. Let's mate Mr. Spock (of the recessive pointy ears) instead to his frequent human admirer, Nurse Chapel, who has two normal alleles.

Sadly, the little guys have no chance of pointy ears now.

To sum it up, Mr. Spock and Nurse Chapel have 100% round eared babies, while Mr. Spock and Jax have 50% round and 50% pointed ear babies. Ahh, the mystery of romance, motherhood, and genetics…
