For this purpose, a number of approaches are employed which include i) Numeric coding of parental and offspring genotypes to simplify the symbolic representation, ii) A very quick "line-dot method" is described to draw genotype outcomes which is then elaborated into "line-dot hexagon" (Ld-hex), iii) Modifying Punnett squares with numeric coding and incorporating symbols to describe gender and affection status, iv) "Ternary coded genotype probability groups" that are also described in the form of "basic genotype hexagon" (bG-hex) (Figs.
