Optional Video: Bozeman Science - Punnett Squares (again)

This video was on the last tutorial, but I've put it in here if you need some reminding.

Paul Andersen introduces the Punnett Square as a a powerful tool in genetic analysis. He tries to address major misconceptions that students have when use a Punnett Square. He gives a number of examples of monohybrid crosses and one example of a dihybrid cross. The square is a simple tool that uses the outcome of meiosis to determine possible offspring in a cross.
