Dragon Genetics Independent Assortment and Genetic Linkage Modified from an activity by Dr. Ingrid Waldron and Jennifer Doherty, Department of Biology, University of Pennsylvania. In this activity you will study the patterns of inheritance of multiple genes in (imaginary) dragons. These dragons have two pairs of homologous chromosomes in each cell. There is a gene for wings and another gene for horns, each on a different chromosome, as described in the following table. The mother dragon is heterozygous for the wing gene (Ww) and the horn gene (Hh). The father is homozygous recessive for the wing gene (ww) and the horn gene (hh). 1. What phenotypic traits will each parent have? 2. To predict the inheritance of the wing and horn genes, you need to determine the
