What is a true-breeding plant?
Updated August 20, 2019. A true-breeding plant is one that, when self-fertilized, only produces offspring with the same traits. True-breeding organisms are genetically identical and have identical alleles for specified traits.
What is an example of true breeding in agriculture?
Farmers and ranchers, for example, use true-breeding males as mating partners for their livestock to produce animals that have characteristics such as better milk production or muscle composition. True-breeding plants are also very valuable in relation to crops.
What is a true breeding plant (pureline)?
A true breeding plant (pureline) has homozygcus genes for a character (e.g. TT for tall or tt for dwarf). It always produces offsprings which are true (pure) for its characters. A pure tall and a pure dwarf plant were crossed to produce offspring. Offspring were self-crossed.
Are true breeding organisms homozygous dominant?
True-breeding organisms are genetically identical and have identical alleles for specified traits. The alleles for these type of organisms are homozygous. True-breeding plants and organisms may express phenotypes that are either homozygous dominant or homozygous recessive.
