Name: SID:  Quiz 2 25 total points possible 1. (6 pts ) Tastebudless is a simple autosomal recessive disease, with the debilitating outcome  of being unable to enjoy pie.  The population frequency (probability of any one person carrying 1  allele) for tastebudless is 1/1000.   If two people with no family history of tastebudless have a child, what is the probability of that  child being affected by the disease?  Don’t worry about the math, just set up the problem.   (1/1000)*(1/1000)*(1/4) = 1/4,000,000 If one  parent has an affected grandmother, what is the probability of having an affected child? (1/2)*(1/1,000)*(1/4)= 1/8,000 If both  parents have an affected grandmother, what is the probability of having an affected  child? (1/2)*(1/2)*(1/4) = 1/16 2. (6pts)   C. elegans  are normally long, worm shaped organisms.  You discover in your  C.  elegans  colony a male with the peculiar attribute of being pie-shaped rather than long and slim.
