HOMEWORK SET #2 — KEY 1. (6 pts total) a) The minimum number of genes is 3 to specify 8 different phenotypes. If one assumes that a different phenotype is due to A_ vs aa; B_ vs bb, etc., there will be 2 3 combinations (A_B_C_ vs aaB_C_, A_bbC_, etc. (2 pts) b) This is one example that will fit the data, perhaps others are possible.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
