Tayler Hoyt DNA "Fingerprinting" Worksheet 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 Mother A/D G I/J M/N Child A/C E/ G I/K M/O Alleged Father B/C E/F H/K L/O In this hypothetical paternity case, four autoradiographs show DNA "fingerprints" taken from three individuals: a mother, her child, and the child's alleged father. Each autoradiograph compares equivalent DNA segments from the three individuals. The two dark bands in each column represent one individual's DNA segments -- one inherited from that individual's biological mother and the other from
the biological father. These segments differ in length from person to person; for this reason they are used as genetic markers. Here, eachlength is designated by a letter, A through O. The two letters associated with each segment indicate the individual's genotype.Instructions1.In the table, write the letters associated with each individual's genotype. For example, the genotype of the mother in the first column is A/D. Then, highlight the letter in the child's genotypethat represents the gene inherited from the mother.
