Paull BIO 212 Problem Set #6 (15 pts) Due on March 10/11 Handout #6: dihybrid cross/extensions to Mendel 1. (2 pts) Imagine two unusual character traits in cats: 7 toes instead of 5, and baldness on the head. Both traits are dominant. If you cross a 7-toed, bald cat with a normal hairy cat, what are the possible outcomes? (There are 4 different scenarios; list the genotypes and phenotypes of the offspring for each scenario using A and a for toes and B and b for baldness) 2. (5 pts) In sesame plants, the one-pod condition (P) is dominant to the three-pod condition (p), and normal leaf (L) is dominant to wrinkled leaf (l). Pod type and leaf type are inherited independently. Determine the genotypes for the two parents for all possible matings producing the following offspring: a. 318 one-pod normal 98 one-pod wrinkled b. 323 three-pod normal, 106 three-pod wrinkled c. 401 one-pod normal d. 150 one-pod normal, 147 one-pod wrinkled, 51 three-pod normal, 48 three-pod wrinkled e. 223 one-pod normal, 72 one-pod wrinkled, 76 three-pod normal, 27 three-pod
