Term Definition
Non-Mendelian inheritance
Deviation from Mendel's rules. Mendel's experiments established three basic genetic rules: 1. Some alleles are dominant, others recessive. 2. During gamete formation different alleles segregate from each other. 3. Different genes assort independently. Imprinting is an exception to Mendel's rules because the behavior of imprinted genes is affected by which parent the genes are inherited from.
