*** Only needs to be about Three Paragraphs long, please site in APA format***

This week we are going to explore the concepts behind complex inheritance. Be sure to clearly label the parts of your discussion.

A) Define and explain complex inheritance – what factors are involved with this inheritance and how does it differ from Mendelian inheritance?

B) This information is from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website. From the leading causes of death listed below, list three that have high heritabilities, and three that do not. Base your decisions on on data and explain your selections. Be sure to clearly separate your answers into heritable vs those that do not have high heritabilities. Be sure to clearly explain your selections and include data on the heritability for the causes of death that you selected.
