Learn about Punnet squares with the help of these helpful, interactive, and sometimes hysterical websites. Its not every day that you get to figure out the genotypes of the purple people eater! Science is fun!
Figuring out genotype percentages with Punnett Squares makes the concept of biological traits much easier to understand, and once you get the hang of how to build them, you'll find that they're really easy. Even more importantly, you'll see how Punnett Squares help to make genetic combinations that seem complex at first glance, much easier to understand.
The Punnett Square Practice Page
This is a great page on Punnett Squares, even though the weird capitalization of the headings is very distracting. With that aside, youll find plenty of good practice problems, including my favorite, the Purple People Eater.

Punnett Square Calculator
Input your genotypes and see what happens when theyre crossed. There are some already built into the pull-down menus or you can input your own variables.
