A1. Blood Types Chart Blood Type A B AB O Genotype AA AO BB BO AB OO Phenotype A B AB O A2. A mother with the blood type A would have a blood genotype of either AA or AO. A father with a blood type B would have a blood genotype of either BB or BO. Their offspring would have approximately a 63% chance of having the blood genotype AB which would result in a phenotype of AB. The offspring would have approximately a 19% chance of having the blood genotype AO resulting in a phenotype of A. An approximate chance of 13% exists for the offspring to have the blood genotype BO resulting in a phenotype of B. The offspring would have approximately a 6% chance of having the blood genotype OO resulting in a phenotype of O. There is a 0% chance of the offspring having the blood genotype AA as the father would not contribute an A allele. A3. A mother and a father with a blood type of either O, A, or B could have a baby that presents with a phenotype of O. If one parent has AB blood type, then it is impossible for the baby to present with a phenotype of O. B1. For the inheritable traits survey, I will be surveying for the expression of the following traits: gender, preferential handedness, ability to taste phenylthiocarbamide (PTC), tongue rolling, thumb extension, and thumb placement during hand clasping. B2. After surveying 37 individuals for the inheritable traits listed above, the following results were found: B3. The national averages for the inheritable traits listed above are as follows: B4. The findings in my survey of inheritable traits are within statistical norms when compared with the expected national average incidence rates of the same traits. It is important to note that

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
