Comments:
  
1.   Alleleic Conventions

The Punnett Squares used on this page are not strictly correct. Throughout, the letter "g" has been used to represent the off-state for any particular colour trait. This makes it easier to scan each Punnett Square quickly and also makes it easier for novices to learn genetics.

Note that capital letters are employed to represent the on-state for dominant traits [ie., BV, B, W, W*] while lowercase letters represent recessive traits [ie., c, e, s, v] in the on-state.

Technically, lowercase letters should be used for dominant traits in the off-state [ie., bv, b, w, w*] while capital letters would be used for the off-state of recessive alleles [ie., C, E, S, V] . Not only can this be confusing for genetics novices but the low screen resolution typically used to view web pages makes it difficult to visually distinguish between upper- and lowercases of such letters as C, S, V, W* & W.

The following demonstrates the differences between Punnett Squares that are technically correct [on the left] and the style used for this page [on the right] :

2.   Potential Outcomes


3.   Redundant Entries:
  • There are several redundant entries in the various Chin Colour Crosses which merely reflect acceptable variations in nomenclature. For instance:
      Black Velvet X Standard Grey <=> TOV Standard X Standard Grey
Black White Cross X Standard Grey <=> TOV White X Standard Grey
Brown Velvet X Standard Grey <=> TOV Beige X Standard Grey
Black Velvet hetero Ebony X Standard Grey <=> TOV Ebony (hetero Ebony) X Standard Grey
Black Velvet homo Ebony X Standard Grey <=> TOV Ebony (homo Ebony) X Standard Grey
Black Velvet Charcoal X Standard Grey <=> TOV Charcoal X Standard Grey
Black Velvet Sapphire X Standard Grey <=> TOV Sapphire X Standard Grey
Black Velvet Violet X Standard Grey <=> TOV Violet X Standard Grey
Charcoal Carrier X Standard Grey <=> Standard Grey Charcoal Carrier X Standard Grey
Charcoal X Standard Grey <=> Standard Grey Charcoal X Standard Grey
Sapphire Carrier X Standard Grey <=> Standard Grey Sapphire Carrier X Standard Grey
Sapphire X Standard Grey <=> Standard Grey Sapphire X Standard Grey
Violet Carrier X Standard Grey <=> Standard Grey Violet Carrier X Standard Grey
Violet X Standard Grey <=> Standard Grey Violet X Standard Grey

4.   Wilson Whites vs White Mosaic entries
  • Even though Wilson Whites and White Mosaics [including Silvers] are usually modelled as genotypically "equivalent", separate entries have been created mainly because the White Mosaics have a very high tendency to begat more White Mosaics rather than revert back to pure Wilson Whites. The alleles associated with White Mosaics have been flagged with an asterisk [ie., W* ] to indicate this phenomenon.

5.   Carriers vs Crosses
  • The term "Carrier" is typically employed to refer to a Chin colour DiHybrid in which a Recessive Trait such as Charcoal, Sapphire, or Violet exists in the heterozygous state and therefore is NOT expressed [that is, it is invisible]. This convention does not work well with hetero Ebony DiHybrids because even in the heterozygous state, the Ebony Trait, a Cumulative Recessive or weakly dominant trait, is still expressed.
  • The term "Cross" is typically employed to refer to a Chin colour DiHybrid involving Dominant Traits or when a Recessive Trait such as Charcoal, Sapphire, or Violet exists in the homozygous state and therefore is expressed [that is, "visible"]. This convention is applicable to homo Ebony DiHybrids but still leaves hetero Ebony DiHybrids in limbo. Accordingly, these two Ebony states are better referred to in the Chin Colour Crosses as simply "homo Ebony" and "hetero Ebony", respectively.

6.   TOVs
  • The term "TOV" means "Touch of Velvet" and refers to a DiHybrid which contains the Black Velvet Trait in the heterozygous state. As well, a regular Black Velvet is also a "TOV Standard". [Note: the Black Velvet Trait cannot exist in the homozygous state because the associated Lethal Factor precludes fetal development.]

7.   TriHybrids
  • The file size of each of the Chin Colour Crosses pages is already quite large with just a listing of Monohybrid and DiHybrid crosses with another MonoHybrid. Therefore, TriHybrids and higher have not been included at this time.

8.   Browser Requirements
  • JavaScript must be enabled in order to use the navigation menus and buttons
  • The Chin Colour Crosses were designed with a screen resolution of 800 x 600 [with large fonts] in mind. However, this was not entirely successful so a screen resolution of 1024 x 768 may be more appropriate to eliminate line wrapping.
  • The Chin Colour Crosses have been successfully tested with both Netscape 4.7 and MS Internet Explorer 4.
