It is not possible to study the inheritance pattern of traits in human beings; the same way as it is done in pea plant because, the pea plant undergoes self-pollination in every generation thereby keeping it pure. But, this is not the same in case of humans. That is control crosses cannot be performed in humans.
Also, in a pea plant, one gene is responsible for a single character only but this is not true for human beings.
An alternate method employed for the analysis of human traits is Pedigree analysis. It is a diagram which shows how the genes are transmitted from one generation to another generation and also shows ancestral relationships of an individual.
