Human Traits
Human Characteristics Lab
Name_______________________________ Period_____________
Instructions: Get with a partner and determine your phenotype for each of the traits listed
below. Identify as much of your genotype as you accurately can.
Homework: Determine the phenotype and genotype of your parents. (If you do not have access
to one or both of your parents, determine the phenotype and genotype of your siblings, if siblings
are not available, see me to find another method to complete this assignment.) When you have
completed identifying your parent's traits, see if you can further determine your own genotype.

2. Which traits are you NOT able to determine a full genotype for? Why?
