    Hi, im confused on the inheritance section of the spec. When drawing genetic crosses, why do u take the possible genotypes from the F1 generation and breed them together to get the F2 generation? Isnt this a form of inbreeding?

    Hi interesting Q,

    Yes it is inbreeding, or rather,at least in the case of plants, it is self-pollination rather than cross-pollination.

    Most experiments on genetics use plants/flowers or laboratory animals, so the Q of incest does not arise lol!
