Chris Hopper BIO 307 Cell and Genetics lab Dr. Reiken 1. The law of independent assortment states that the alleles of two or more different gene pair independently of each other during meiosis, such that a random combination of genes from each pair winds up in the gametes. In other words each is just as likely to end up in the same gamete. Mendel’s second law does not apply to all genes. When genes lie close together on the same chromosome, they are linked and are more likely to travel together during meisosis. If the genes are located on different chromosomes, the do independently assort. For two genes located far apart on the same chromosome, crossing over unlinks the genes, and the genes assort independently. 2. Independent assortment shows how different combinations of alleles can be produced in gametes; this allows us to draw a Punnett square to show possible recombinations. 3. Chi squared is a statistical means to verify that your experimental data is within acceptable error from what it should theoretically be. Hybrid Vigor is the increase
