01/05 Genetics!

Sometimes art isn't just goofiness, sometimes it's for work. I'm helping revise a textbook, and this is a figure I created to show how genes influence traits.  More standard illustration than anything else, but I still think it's pretty cool.


  1. I like it but I have a question. Should the little "b"s be blue?

  2. Yeah, they need to be blue, since they signify the "blue" allele form of the eye gene. It makes it easier for students to know that big B overrules little b (brown > blue), but when there are two little b's you get blue.
