Genetics 320 Problem Set Five Solutions 1. (2 points) : 1000 linear tetrads from A/a are scored, and the following numbers are observed: linear tetrad number seen aaAA 390 aAaA 90 AAaa 410 AaaA 110 (a) What is the frequency of first division segregation? Of second division segregation? Freq(1st) = (390+410)/1000 = 0.8, Freq(2nd) = (90+110)/1000 = 0.2 (b) What is the recombination frequency between the A locus and the centromere? locus-centromere recombination frequency = (1/2)* Freq(2nd Divs seg) = (1/2)* 0.2 = 0.1 2. (3 points) : Consider unordered tetrads from the cross Ab/aB , where the tetrads were tetrad members number seen Ab, aB, ab, AB 138 tetratype ab, ab, AB, AB 12 nonparental Ab, Ab, aB, aB 150 parental (a) Identify the parental, nonparental, and tetratypes. (b) What is the recombination fraction between the A and B loci? (1 / 2) T + NPD T + NPD + P = (1 / 2)138 + 12 138 + 12 + 150 = 0 . 27 3. (5 points) : In a cross of cr + al × cr al + , 100 ordered tetrads were scored. These fell into the following five types (Labled A - F), with the numbers observed given below the label. Tetrad A Tetrad B Tetrad C

### What students are saying

• 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.
