By analyzing a pedigree, we can determine genotypes, identify phenotypes, and predict how a trait will be passed on in the future. The information from a pedigree makes it possible to determine how certain alleles are inherited: To start reading a pedigree: Determine whether the trait is dominant or recessive.
If the trait is dominant, one of the parents must have the trait. Dominant traits will not skip a generation.

If the trait is recessive, neither parent is required to have the trait since they can be heterozygous. Determine if the chart shows an autosomal or sex-linked usually X-linked trait.
For example, in X-linked recessive traits, males are much more commonly affected than females. In autosomal traits, both males and females are equally likely to be affected usually in equal proportions. Autosomal dominant trait Pedigree showing the inheritance of freckles across three generations. The diagram shows the inheritance of freckles in a family. The allele for freckles F is dominant to the allele for no freckles f.
However, they pair up and segregate into daughter cells during meiosis. Males have X and Y combination while females have X and X combination. Moreover, all female gametes carry only one X chromosome.
Male gametes may carry either X or Y. The number carrying X is equal to the number carrying Y. If an ovum unites with a sperm carrying X, the result is a female XX.
If an ovum fertilizes with a sperm carrying Y, the result is a male XY. All the genes carried by X chromosomes do not determine sexuality. Many of the genes have other functions similar to genes carried in autosomes.
Sex-linked inheritance shown by genes carried with X chromosomes is not represented in Y chromosomes. These genes normally have recessive alleles, and they show recessive mutations.

However, these defective alleles are very rare in the human population. Hence, they do not express in females as they carry 2X chromosomes.
Heterozygous females are carriers, and they may pass these genes onto their sons. Then they will be expressed in males because they have only one X chromosome. Autosomes and sex chromosomes contain DNA and proteins. They located in the human genome inside the nucleus. Hence, they determine the characteristics of the organism. They exist as pairs. Both segregate during the cell division.Autosomal and X Linked Inheritance
They are responsible for inheritance. There is a total of 46 chromosomes in the human genome. Among them, 44 are autosomes that are responsible for somatic characteristics of an organism.
