List of Mendelian traits in humans
Additional recommended knowledge
This mode of inheritance implies that the child of two parents that display the "recessive" phenotype should also display the "recessive" phenotype. Should this not be the case, that would be an indicator (but no proof) that one of the parents may not be the child's biological parent.
It also means the "recessive" phenotype may theoretically skip any number of generations, lying dormant in heterozygous individuals until they mate with someone who also has the recessive gene and both pass it on.
These traits include:
Some traits were previously believed to be Mendelian, but their inheritance is (probably) based on more complex genetic models, possibly involving more than one gene. These include:
