When does a geneticist need to carry in test Cross?
How would you find the genotype of an organism exhibiting a dominant phenotype?

A geneticist needs to carry a test cross when he/she wants to determine the genotype of an organism, with a dominant phenotype trait, whether it is homozygous or heterozygous.
Genotype of the dominant phenotype is determined by a test cross. In it F1 progeny is crossed to it recessive parents when F1 progeny (heterozygous) crossed with dwarf plant, the monohybrid test cross ratio is 1 : 1. But, all tall plants are obtained when both homozygous parents are crossed.
