Monohybrid Cross Definition A Monohybrid cross is a type of genetic cross between two individuals with homozygous genotypes of a single character or trait, often resulting in an opposite phenotype. Monohybrid crosses are usually performed to determine the genotypes of offspring of homozygous individuals. The hybrid produced from this cross helps in the identification of the dominant genotype in the allele. Even though monohybrid crosses are often associated with homozygous genotypes, these are also used to determine the genetic mix … Read more
