Law of Segregation

The pair of alleles for a given trait separate during meiosis so that each gamete receives only one allele. During fertilization, the new offspring receives one allele from each parent when the two gametes fuse.

Gregor Mendel discovered the law of segregation when he performed monohybrid crosses with pea plants. He observed that the traits of the offspring did not always match those of the parents.
