Problem Set 3 Problem 40: Cross 1: Parents: Dark purple ( MMwwDd ) x White with yellowish spots (mmwwdd) Progeny: ½ Dark purple ( MmwwDd ) and ½ light purple (Mmwwdd) Cross 2: Parents: White with yellowish spots (mmWwDd) x Light purple (MMwwdd) Progeny: ½ white with purple spots (MmWwDd or MmWwdd) ; ¼ Dark purple (MmwwDd ); ¼ Light purple (Mmwwdd) Problem 43: 1) From the crosses 1 and 2 we can see that the wild type coat color is dominant to both platinum and Aleutian. From the 3 rd cross and the phenotypic ratio of 133:41:46:17 (9:3:3:1) we can see that this is a dihybrid cross and two alleles are
