How are biological traits inherited?
We inherit our traits from our parents. Every single chromosome that we have in our body came from our mom and our dad. But how???? We will talk about that in coming weeks! For now, we want to look at how to track this inheritance! This means, we want to find out where our traits and characteristics come from!! To do this we use two different tools, PEDIGREES and PUNNETT SQUARES.
