ACT: Autosomal Linkage: Crossing Over and Chromosome Mapping Crossing Over 1. Gene C and D are linked and are 15 map units apart. If individuals with these genes were mated and 1000 offspring were produced, how many of those offspring would be expected to be recombinants? 15 map units = 15% chance of crossover = 15% recombination rate. This means that if there are 1000 offspring 15% of them or 150 offspring would exhibit recombined characteristics. 2. In tomatoes the following allele information applies to two known linked genes: Gene for fruit shape Gene for fruit skin Dominant Round (R) Smooth ( S) Recessive Long (r) ‘Peach’ (s) In a test cross with a tomato plant heterozygous for both fruit shape and fruit skin , the following were the offspring results: Round and Smooth Long and Smooth Round and Peach Long and Peach 12 123 133 12 a. Which alleles are completely linked? Long & Smooth Round & Peach b. Which alleles are recombined? Round & Smooth Long & Peach c. What is the % Cross Over between these two genes?

    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.
