Expert Answer:

Two basic genetic principles were established by John Gregor Mendel: The Law of Segregation and The Law of Independent Assortment.

According to the Law of segregation, the genetic characteristics of a species are represented in the somatic cells by a pair of units called genes that separate during meiosis so that each gamete receives only one gene for each trait.

According to the Law of Independent Assortment, the members of a gene pair on different chromosomes segregate independently from other pairs during meiosis, so that the gametes offer all combination of factors.
