Question 7

Outline a project which aims to find the dominant coat colour in dogs.


Dogs have different coats. In order to find dominant coat (hair) colour in dogs, select a pure- bred of male and female dog having black colour or pure- bred of male and female having brown colour. Cross the homozygous male BB and homozygous female bb, and then observe the coat colour in dog progeny (offspring). If all progeny have black colour, this means that black colour will be the dominant coat colour in dogs and if progeny will have brown colour then the brown colour will be dominant coat colour.

And, by making the punnett square of F1 generation, we will get Bb, Bb, Bb, Bb ,i.e, all progeny are showing the black colour. So, it is concluded that the dominant colour is black.
