You can use this Punnet square calculator to easily determine the likely outcome of breeding animals, or to find out what your child may be like. Simply put in two or three loci and see what combinations you can expect to appear in the product of your breeding.
How to use:
*Select how many genes you wish to enter
*Enter the dominant and recessive genes and hit 'Calculate Phenotypes'
*Input amount of Phenotypes and hit 'Calculate Results'
What is a Punnet Square?
A Punnet Square is a diagram, in the shape of a square that is used by breeders and biologists to determine the probability of a particular genotype appearing in offspring. It is a summary of possible combinates of alleles from the mother with alleles from the father.
What is an allele?
An allele is each of multiple alternative gene formations that are created by mutation of maternal and paternal genes and can be found at the same place on a chromosome.They determine physical characteristics such as hair / fur colour, eye colour etc. They also combine to determine blood group, and any possible genetic disabilities.
Who is this program for?
This program is best used by animal breeders. If you wanted to breed a certain colour of pet, by choosing parents with obvious genetic make up, you can somewhat determine the outcome of your litter. It could also help biologists, and biology students. It is aimed at anybody interested in biological problems and it's simple interface makes complicated genetic problems simple.
