Unfortunately, all we can see is the phenotypes, and base on that one can only guess or assume their genotypes and then prove it correct or not. I'm sure TB phenotype isn't controlled by just one gene (monohybrid), as the F1 mischling breeding can be used to prove it wrong. I'm leaning toward it's multiple gene that together determine the phenotype, I can *almost* use my F7 mischling breeding to support it (although, not proving it).
I did take genetics and breeding in university but that long long time ago, and I have "returned" most I learned to my prof ;-) Nowadays, I just want to know some fundamentals (even that is hard) and enjoy this hobby.
