what is the difference between back cross and test cross?
 Question Submitted By :: Genetics
I also faced this Question!!     Answer Posted By  
# 1
Test cross is the cross between recessive parent with one of
its progeny.

backcross is the crossing between any of its parents with
These tests are done normally to identify homozygosity among
the breeds.
Is This Answer Correct ?    76 Yes 13 No
# 2
back cross:- it is a cross between f1 individual with one
of its parent genotype.

test cross:-it is a type of back cross between f1
individual and homozygous recessive.
Is This Answer Correct ?    32 Yes 6 No
# 3
Back cross - crossing of hybrid (F1)either of its parents
(dominan / recessive).

AA x aa = Aa x AA / aa

Test Croos - Crossing of F1 with homozygous recessive

AA x aa = Aa x aa
Is This Answer Correct ?    22 Yes 3 No

# 4
back cross-cross between any of the f1 generation offspring with any one of the two parents either the recessive or the dominant

test cross- cross that is being done between the f1 generation offspring with the recessive parent
This cross is being performed to confirm or check the genotype of f1 generation individual taken as sample for cross
Is This Answer Correct ?    8 Yes 1 No

# 5

back cross: the cross between the progeny and either the
dominant or recessive parent
Is This Answer Correct ?    2 Yes 0 No

# 6
back cross-in this type of cross,dominent character & no recessive characters appear in the progeny.
test cross-in this type of cross, dominent & recessive characters appear in equal number i.e 1:1 ratio
