  • Definition: A genetic cross used to determine the genotype (homozygous versus heterozygous) of an individual showing a genetically dominant phenotype. The individual tested is crossed to a homozygous recessive individual. Homozygous individuals tested produce only offspring with the dominant phenotype, whereas heterozygous individuals produce offspring with approximately even numbers of dominant and recessive phenotypes.
