A video that highlights the unspoken assumptions that we use in pedigree analysis.


A video that makes the unspoken assumptions that we use in pedigree analysis explicit through a skit of two students solving a challenging pedigree question over videoconference. The students discuss certain pedigree assumptions which are often not mentioned in other pedigree teaching materials, even though they can be important to solving complex problems. The students recognize that not all assumptions are always applicable and sometimes we need to reconsider which assumptions to use.
