Mendelian inheritance state that genes are segregated equally from the parents to the offsprings. The first law of Mendelian inheritance is the law of equal segregation. The law stated that "when two alleles segregate from each other into the gametes, half of gametes carry one allele, half of gametes carry another allele. There are single alleles in gametes. Supposed there is dominant (R) and recessive (r), there is equal frequency of R and r gametes ( 1/2) in F1. In other words, there is equal chance of each gamete of one F1 parent to fuse with any other gamete of another ...
