Unformatted text preview: Sample Genetics Problem In a certain mouse species, eye color is determined by a single autosomal gene with two alleles that show incomplete dominance: (R) for red eyes versus (r) for white eyes. In turn, the ABO blood system applies to this mouse. A red-eyed, type AB female is crossed with a doubly heterozygous, type A male. Predict the phenotypes and phenotype frequencies of their offspring. Practice problems for next week Using the forked line method, determine the phenotypic ratios of the trihybrid cross AaBbCc X AaBBCC. 1. What proportion of the progeny have the dominant phenotype for A, B, and C? 1. What proportion of the progeny are recessive for A, but dominant for B & C? 1. What proportion of the progeny are homozygous recessive at all loci? Practice problems for next week The genotype of F1 individuals in a tetrahybrid cross is AaBbCcDd. Assuming independent assortment of these four genes, what are the probabilities that F2 offspring would have the following phenotypes?...
