Ramírez Lugo, 2019PROBABILITY AND GENETICS LABORATORY WORKSHEETOBJECTIVES:1.Perform basic calculations (e.g., percentages, frequencies).2.Use basic mathematics (e.g., algebra, unit conversion, probability) in biological contexts.3.Use probability and understanding of biological variability to understand biological processes.4.Explain and apply the laws of probability that govern Mendelian patterns of inheritance.5.Describe different inheritance patterns based on the probabilities of the presence of traits in the progeny.I.INTRODUCTION TO PROBABILITY:Probabilityis a measure for quantifying the likelihood that a given event or outcome will occur. It is typicallyrepresented as a number between0and1, where0indicates that it is not possible for this event to happen(impossibility) and1represents that the event will happen (certainty). Probabilities are also commonlyrepresented as percentages,0%would mean that the event will never happen, whereas100%would representthat an event will always happen.The probability of a given outcome depends on the number of possible outcomes.Here is how we can represent the statement above as a mathematical relationshipPROBABILITY = # OF FAVORABLE OUTCOMES / # OF POSSIBLE OUTCOMES
