1. (20pts) You are a Drosophila geneticist and notice two different fly variants in your bottles: one fly has yellow-eyes and the other fly has stubby wings. You are interested in determining the nature of these characteristics. You propagate the flies to obtain true breeding lines. You then cross a true breeding yellow-eyed straight winged female to a true breeding red-eyed stubby winged male. You find that all the F1 flies have red-eyes and straight wings. a. (4pts) Define alleles of these characters and show genotype of parents (P) and offspring (F1). y+=red; y=yellow; st+=straight; st=stubby (other allele designations are fine, as long as consistent with dominance and recessive relationship of indicated phenotypes) (1pt) P: yyst+st+ x y+y+stst (1pt for each correct parent) F1: y+yst+st (1pt) b. (4pts) You perform the reciprocal cross (red-eyed stubby winged females x yellow-eyed straight winged males) and obtain red-eyed straight winged females and red-eyed stubby winged males. Please draw cross and explain this result. P: y+y+XstXst x yyXst+Y (2pts) F1: y+yXstXst+ and y+yXstY (2pts) Because there is a difference in the behavior of the reciprocal cross, the stubby wing must reside on the X chromosome. c. (4pts) The F1s from b above are crossed to obtain F2s. What proportion of the F2 red-eyed straight winged flies are true breeding? There are 6 red-eyed straight winged flies in the F2, of those only 1 is true breeding or homozygous (y+y+Xst+Y). Therefore 1/6. (4pts) [2pts for 6/16 or 3/8] d. (4pts) What proportion of the F2 yellow-eyed stubby winged flies are true breeding (from the same cross)? There are 2 yellow-eyed stubby winged flies in the F2 and both are
