A coin toss has 2 possible outcomes • P (H) = P (T) = 1/2 B I O L O G Y 0 2 3 26-Sep-09 Gardiner 6 Solving Mendelian Problems • Determine the probability of gamete genotype AB – AaBb P (AB) = ¼ – Rule of multiplication - “A and B” 2 B I O L O G Y 0 2 3 26-Sep-09 Gardiner 7 Compound probability: multiplication rule • The probability of two independent events having a specified outcome is P 1 x P 2 • For example, a two-coin toss has four possible outcomes • ½ tails x ½ tails = ¼ double tails Multiplication Rule : If events A and B are independent, then P(A and B) = P(A)P(B) Suppose a six sided dice is rolled twice and the rolls are independent. A = rolling a 1 on the first roll B = rolling a 1 on the second roll P(rolling a 1 on both rolls) = P(A and B) =P(A)P(B) = 1/6 x 1/6 = 1/36 Segregation of alleles & fertilization as chance events B I O L O G Y 0 2 3 26-Sep-09 Gardiner 10 Dihybrid Cross • So: Parent YyRr • probability gamete will carry Y and R alleles is ¼ • In the F 2 we don’t have to construct a Punnett square – probability of YYRR is 1/16 ( ¼ chance ovum YR x ¼ chance YR sperm) B I O L O G Y 0 2 3 26-Sep-09 Gardiner 11 Compound probability : addition rule • The probability of alternative outcomes is P 1 + P 2 • For example, in a two coin toss, the probability that they will be the same is = ¼ double tails + ¼ double heads = 1 /2 B I O L O G Y 0 2 3 26-Sep-09 Gardiner 12 Solving Mendelian problems • Determine the probability of gamete genotype Ab or aB – AaBb P (Ab ) = 1/4 – AaBb P (aB ) = 1/4 – P (Ab or aB ) = 1/2 – Rule of addition “Ab or aB ” 3 PpYyRr x Ppyyrr What fraction of offspring will exhibit the recessive phenotype for at least two of the three traits?
