Unformatted text preview: allele. 9. No, because albino mice only have the two recessive (rr) alleles and the dominant (R) allele is needed to have normally colored fur. 10. The percentages are pretty close to what I predicted. I guess they are as close as can be expected. I did predict that there would be more albinos with long tails, but other than that, the numbers are pretty consistent. The ratio of 9:3:3:1 is not what our group got. There were more normal colored mice than anything else, but there were more albinos with long tails than normal colored mice with short tails which were pretty much even with the albino mice with short tails. I guess this is pretty much because everything really is up to chance and doesn’t necessarily follow the rules all of the time....
