Unformatted text preview: 75-1890 Microscopic understanding of mitosis/meiosis If you really understand this figure, you know all the main points! Starting with two true-breeding pea plants, we follow two genes through the F1 and F2 generations. The two genes specify seed color (allele Y for yellow and allele y for Y green) and seed shape (allele R for round and allele r for wrinkled). These two genes are on different chromosomes. (Peas have seven chromosome pairs, but only two pairs are illustrated here.)

Y r Anaphase I y r r Metaphase II r R Y 1 Alleles at both loci segregate in anaphase I, yielding four types of daughter cells depending on the chromosome arrangement at metaphase I.
