To analyse the genotype of an organism, it is made to:
A. Self cross
B. Cross with recessive parent
C. Cross with dominant parent
D. Cross with another species
• The method used for the determination of the genotype of an organism is called test cross.
• In this type of cross, organism with unknown genotype is crossed with the recessive trait parents.
• If the all the progenies obtained are of same type then it is said that the organism with unknown genotype is homozygous.
• It is concluded that the genotype of unknown organism is heterozygous, if 50-50% result is obtained.
