Unformatted text preview: o All the numbers checkered all over the table = chi-squared values, NOT probabilities. 35) J.A. Moore investigated the inheritance of spotting patterns in leopard frogs. The pipiens phenotype had the normal spots that give leopard frogs their name. In contrast, the burnsi phenotype lacked spots on its back. Moore carried out the following crosses, producing the progeny indicated. Parent Phenotypes Progeny phenotypes BICD-100 Genetics Ghiara Spring 08 Week 6- Tuesday Burnsi x burnsi 39 burnsi, 6 pipiens Burnsi x pipiens 23 burnsi, 33 pipiens Burnsi x pipiens 196 burnsi, 210 pipiens a) On the basis of these results, what is the most likely mode of inheritance of the burnsi phenotype? b) Give the most likely genotypes of the parents in each cross. c) Use a chi-square test to evaluate the fit of the observed numbers of progeny to the number expected on the basis of your proposed genotypes....
