1. Mendelian inheritance
Mendelian inheritance is the pattern of inheritance of traits in which each trait is determined by a gene located in a single locus. This pattern of inheritance was first discovered by Gregor Mendel in 1865 when he studied the pattern of single trait inheritance of garden peas. The human genome consists of two allele s for each locus . The possible patterns of transmission of a trait to the children following Mendelian inheritance rules can be found.
