Thus, the mode of inheritance of the yellow trait was studied and the hypothesis of an autosomal recessive allele for yellow color was tested using hybridization and backcrossing te…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
