Genetic Crosses

Major objective of this lecture is to present on Genetic Crosses. A genetic cross may be defined as the conscious breeding of two different individuals resulting in offspring that carries a portion of the genetic material of both the parent individuals. The parent individuals involving in the cross may be from species that are closely related or from different varieties and the parent individuals are compatible genetically. There different genetic crosses occurring between breeding individuals are the monohybrid cross and the dihybrid cross.
