No, It is not possible. The trait Tall is always dominant over dwarf.

How dominant and recessive alleles for the trait of stem height determine whether a pea plant will be tall or short?

The dominant trait for height in a pea plant is tall (TT or Tt). The only instance in which a pea plant will be short is if it carries both recessive alleles (tt).

What are the possible genotypes of a short plant?

Because the shot gene in the pea plant is a recessive trait, there is only one possible genotype for it: tt

T is genetic trait for tallness and its allele t is recessive for tallness and their are four children with alleles TT tT Tt tt how many will be tall?

OK first, you don't say tT. The dominant allele is always put first. So this would actually be TT Tt Tt and tt. The only way a recessive trait will show is if the dominant trait isn't present. Therefore 3 will be tall and one will be short. BTW: TT isn't an example of an allele. It's actually the genotype. T is an example of an allele. Tallness is a genetic trait, but T is not. A genetic trait is simply a title that includes whatever phenotype may become apparent. A phenotype is the trait that shows up. If a person's genotype is TT or Tt, their phenotype will be tall. If a person's genotype is tt, then their phenotype will be short.


How many trait combinations are possible when two parent plants both with the Tt trait-controllers are mated?

Two individuals heterozygous for a single trait have children what is the expected phenotypic ratio of the possible offspring?

Let T=trait (dominant) Let t= trait (recessive) Father has Tt and mother also has Tt The possible combinations for offspring are: TT Tt Tt and tt Therefore There is a 3/4 change of the offspring having the dominant trait and a 1/4 Chance of the offspring having the recessive trait It should also be noted that there is a 1/4 chance of the offspring carrying two dominant genes meaning that any of their children will also share the dominant trait


What does a capital letter such as represent in a Punnett square?

Capital letters on Punnett Squares represent dominant genes, while lowercase letters represent recessive genes. For example, if the trait "T" is a tall gene and the trait "t" is a short gene. When you get your results (if both parents are heterozygous for tallness, Tt) you get four possible results, 1 TT (homozygous tall), 2 Tt (twice, heterozygous tall Tt), and 1 tt (homozygous short). If there is a dominant gene there, that gene will be displayed. Only if there are two recessive genes will the recessive trait be displayed.

Is the trait TT heterozygous or homozygous?

The trait TT is homozygous because TT is same and homo stands for same.
