Description:

Parts 1 and 2 of this lab demonstrate basic principles of meiosis, fertilization, and inheritance using the same pea traits that Mendel studied. We suggest you start at the beginning to brush up on the basics. But if you just can't wait to play the game, skip ahead to part 3, The Princess and the Wrinkled Peas.
