A bit of biology on the program, a return to the differences in phenotype (what we see) and genotype (genetics), or even various pathologies related to genetics. We also talk about hair nomenclature, but based on genetics rather than the traditional phenotype-based nomenclature. To go further, we are talking about crosses, in order to determine the probability of the dress in the future draw according to the parents. Concepts that are sometimes complex, but well illustrated and explained, enough to deepen the genetic knowledge of the enthusiast!
