F2 generation of incomplete dominance.

Open 1 Answers Fundamentals of Genetics

1 Answer


In incomplete dominance, the phenotype of heterozygote or hybrid is intermediate between the phenotypes of the parents (homozygous). In this no one allele is completely dominant over the other and hence the resultant phenotype is intermediate of two.

F1 generation will be intermediate i.e. neither of the parental phenotypes will be observed in F1 generation whereas in F2 generation the two alleles segregate in offsprings to give three different phenotypes- two of the parental (P) generation phenotype and the intermediate phenotype of F1 generation.
