Storyboard Text

  • Tinkerbell and Dracula met at a carnival back in the 20's. Tinkerbell - being a fairy who was homozygous recessive for the incompletely dominant sparkly gene (ss) was taken with the seductively vampiric Drac
  • Dracula thought Tinkerbell was scrumptious looking. He was SS (non-sparkly) but a vampire (VV)
  • They had a son - Edward - who ended up heterozygous for the incompletely dominant sparkly gene. Ss. However, he was dominant for the vampire gene (Vv)
  • Edward met Bella in science class. She was whiney and boring. She carried the pleiotropic gene that coded for both whineyness and boringness.
  • Let's see how that works!
  • Vampire gene: VV x vv = Vv (V being dominant) Sparkly gene: SS x ss = Ss (incompletely dominant - Edward only sparkles in sunlight instead of all the time like a fairy) Pleiotropic Bella: Bella is AA - homozygous dominant for being both whiney and boring which is pleiotropic. Luckly, Edward is neither whiney nor boring: aa.
