Veronica van Heyningen, Patricia L. Single gene disorders with Mendelian inheritance patterns have contributed greatly to the identification of genes and pathways implicated in genetic disease.
Exceptions to Simple Inheritance. Since Mendel's time, our knowledge of the mechanisms of genetic inheritance has grown immensely.

A few important Non-Mendelian inheritance patterns are multiple alleles , sex-linked traits , incomplete dominance , and codominance.
A lot of human traits are said to have multiple alleles. As opposed to just having a dominant and recessive version of an allele, there may be more than two versions of a gene that contribute to the overall phenotype. In humans, blood type is a strong example of a trait that has multiple alleles. Another common example of multiple alleles is fur color inheritance in a certain species of rabbits.
This is highlighted below. Image courtesy of WikiMedia Commons. As shown in this image, there is a dominant C allele and three different recessive c alleles. The combination of inheritance of these various alleles results in four different phenotypes.
Sex-linked traits are traits that exist on a sex chromosome, X or Y. Most frequently, these traits lie on the X chromosome. Because of this, males are more likely to inherit these disorders because they only have one X chromosome, and, therefore, cannot be heterozygous. Common examples of sex-linked traits are colorblindness and Hemophilia. Both of these disorders are carried on the X chromosome.
An example of how a Punnett square for a sex linked trait would be set up is shown below. This Punnett square shows a mom XBXb who is heterozygous for color blindness. Because color blindness is recessive, she has normal color vision, but is a carrier of the recessive allele. There are also two boys. One has the dominant allele, XBY, and will have normal color vision. The other has the recessive allele, XbY, and will be colorblind. The dad XBY has the dominant allele for this trait and, therefore, has normal color vision as well.
Yet, when these two parents are crossed, there is a possibility that some of their offspring will be colorblind. In this Punnett square there are two girls on the left-hand side. Both will have normal color vision. Incomplete dominance refers to traits where neither allele is dominant over the other. A good example of this is with flower colors. There are some species of flowers that have both red and white coloration, but neither is dominant. Heterozygous individuals have a combination of both colors, creating pink flowers.
A good example of this is spots on certain breeds of cow. Some cows of this species are red, some are white, and some have red and white spots. As you can see, all of the heterozygous offspring have a mix of both parental phenotypes, showing that neither is more dominant than the other.

In some situations, the proportion of phenotypes observed do not match the predicted values. This is called Non-mendelian inheritance and it plays an important role in several disease processes. Non-mendelian inheritance can manifest as incomplete dominance, where offspring do not display traits of either parent but rather, a mix of both. Two alleles produce an intermediate phenotype, rather than either one exerting a specific dominance. Incomplete dominance will give a phenotype ratio with the homozygous genotypes each showing a different feature and the heterozygous showing one more distinct phenotype. An example of this is the snapdragon flower, Antirrhinum majus, which expresses white, red and pink phenotypes.

Veronica van Heyningen, Patricia L. Single gene disorders with Mendelian inheritance patterns have contributed greatly to the identification of genes and pathways implicated in genetic disease. In these cases, molecular analysis predicts disease status relatively directly.
These pink flowers of a heterozygote snapdragon result from incomplete dominance. However, the heterozygote phenotype occasionally does appear to be intermediate between the two parents. Note that different genotypic abbreviations are used for Mendelian extensions to distinguish these patterns from simple dominance and recessiveness.
Gregor Mendel, through his work on pea plants, discovered the fundamental laws of inheritance. He deduced that genes come in pairs and are inherited as distinct units, one from each parent.
По его тону ей стало ясно, что он все понял. Вся ложь Танкадо о невскрываемом алгоритме… обещание выставить его на аукцион - все это было игрой, мистификацией. Танкадо спровоцировал АНБ на отслеживание его электронной почты, заставил поверить, что у него есть партнер, заставил скачать очень опасный файл. - Линейная мутация… - еле выдавил Стратмор. - Я знаю.
Как только найдется недостающая копия ключа, Цифровая крепость - ваша. - Но с ключа могут снять копию. - Каждый, кто к нему прикоснется, будет уничтожен. Повисла тишина. Наконец Нуматака спросил: - Где ключ .
Его целью была Нью-Йоркская фондовая биржа, а замыслом - перераспределение богатства. За шесть дней члены группы установили в зданиях вокруг биржи двадцать семь взрывобезопасных легкоплавких контейнеров. Одновременный подрыв этих тщательно замаскированных устройств должен был создать магнитное поле такой мощности, что вся информация на магнитных носителях - жестких дисках компьютеров, в постоянных запоминающих устройствах, в резервных файлах и даже на гибких дисках - оказалась бы стерта.
