Mendelian Inheritance

Summarized by Plex Health
Last Updated: 07 May 2022

Mendelian inheritance refers to particular patterns of exactly how attributes are passed from parents to offspring. Mendel's explorations of how traits are given from one generation to the following introduced the idea of dominant and recessive settings of inheritance. Mendelian inheritance describes the type of inheritance you can understand more just as the effect of a solitary gene. So in human genetics, for example, when you take a look at a problem like Huntington's disease, and you see that it follows this pattern where an affected person who passes that to a child, the child has a 50 percent chance of being contaminated. That's leading Mendelian inheritance.
