Genetics is one of the hardest subjects to learn. Science students spend years at college or university learning to fully understand this complex topic and they are being taught by trained teachers, yet we are trying to learn it through bits and pieces that we read on websites or books and wonder why we can’t understand it.
By using simple illustrations we hope that you will find some of the answers you are looking for and help you slowly understand the basics of genetics. We believe that once you truly understand what the difference is between Heterozygous and Homozygous and what difference the outcome will be when applied to Recessive, Co-dominant and Dominant genes, it will become clearer and easier.
