Pigeon Breeding: Genetics At Work

"Great as are the differences between the breeds of the pigeon, I am fully convinced that the common opinion of naturalists is correct, namely, that all are descended from the rock-pigeon (Columba livia)."
—Excerpt from Charles Darwin, On the Origin of Species (1859)
To make it clear what we're talking about, we've used the following naming conventions:
  • Physical characteristics, or phenotypes, are in plain text: crest
  • Gene names are in italics: crest, EphB2
  • Allele names are in single quotes: 'crest,' 'no crest'
  • Protein names are in all caps: EPHB2
