3 Name:______________________________ (1) In a species of tropical fish, a colorful variant called montezuma occurs. When two montezuma are crossed, 2/3 progeny are montezuma and 1/3 are the wild type (green). Montezyma is a single gene trait and montezuma fish are never true-breeding. Explain the inheritance pattern seen here and show how your explanation accounts for the phenotypic ratio given above. (8 points) (2) In a certain population of frogs, 120 were green, 60 were green-brown, and 20 were brown. The allele for green is denoted G G and that for brown is denoted G B . These two alleles show incomplete dominance relative to each other. (a) What are the genotype frequencies? (3 points) (b) What are the allele frequencies? (6 points) (c) What are the expected frequencies of genotypes if the population is at Hardy- Weinberg equilibrium? (3 points)
