Breeding colored mice
The hypothesis that the white mouse has the dominant gene, is proven to be false. The white mice couplesonly gave birth to white newborn. The dominant gene is in the black mice because they were able to produce litters of different colors, including black and white.
Mice have been kept and bred as pets for hundreds of years all over the world. They are available in various colors, are easy to handle and inexpensive to keep as pets. They also have a genome similar to humans. This is why mice have been used as laboratory animals to conduct experiments that cannot be done on humans.
What would happen if the science fair project was repeated by breeding mice of different color coats?
The science fair project can also be done by breeding and comparing the eye color of the mice.

Handle the mice carefully and was your hands after handling.
