Outline a project which aims to find the dominant coat color in dogs.
There are 11 identified genes that influence coat color in dogs. Dog inherits one gene from each parent and only the dominant gene gets expressed.
Case- A dog may be genetically black or brown, if one parent is homozygous black BB and the other is homozygous brown bb. The offspring produced will be heterozygous Bb and will be black in color. So, black will be the dominant coat color.
If these heterozygous offspring Bb are crossed amongst themselves, homozygous black BB, heterozygous black Bb, and homozygous brown bb offspring will be produced in the ratio 1:2:1
The dominant coat color in this case will be black.

A man with blood group B marries a woman with blood group O, and their daughter has blood group O. Is this information sufficient to tell you which of the traits, i.e., blood group B or O is dominant? Why or why not?Xam idea - Science
The genotype of green-stemmed tomato plants is denoted as GG and that of purple-stemmed tomato plants as gg. When these two are crossed,
i. What colour of stem would you expect in their F1 progeny?
ii. Give the percentage of purple-stemmed plants if F1 plants are self-pollinated.
iii. In what ratio would you find the genotypes GG and Gg in the F2 progeny?Xam idea - Science
