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. Across every possible combination of all parental genotypes, their offspring would have a 62.5% chance of having the blood genotype AB which would result in a phenotype of AB, an 18.75% chance of having the blood genotype AO resulting in a phenotype of A, a 12.5% chance exists for the offspring to have the blood genotype BO resulting in a phenotype of B, a 6.25% chance of having the blood genotype OO resulting in a phenotype of O, and a 0% chance of the offspring having either the blood genotype AA or BB as the father would not contribute an A allele and the mother would not contribute a B 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. The survey given to respondents is copied below. Survey of Inheritable Traits in Staff at Lakeway Learning Center This survey is being conducted as part of my studies at Western Governor’s University. As a part of the Life Science coursework, we are asked to study the occurrence of easily identifiable inheritable traits in a survey population of at least 20 individuals. Your help is greatly appreciated. The survey will take approximately five minutes to take and personal information is not gathered. All six of the inheritable traits that are being surveyed are easily identifiable through simple observation. Results of this survey are anonymous and any information gathered is kept confidential.
