  • From the research Mendel found that there can be a homozygous pea plants and heterozygous pea plants
  • This white flowered pea plant is homozygous because it has two lower case r's- rr
  • The combination of alleles like rr or Rr or RR is the pea plants genotype and the result or appearance is called its phenotype
