Abstract

I HAVE noticed that people who are good at solving cross-word puzzles are also very good at understanding those complex statements of Mendelian results. I am distressed at my inability to worry out cross-word exercises and also those F1, F2, etc., synoptical charts, for I feel I may be missing something that will help in an understanding of genetical problems. It would be comforting to know if there are other biologists who admit the same disability.
