of genetic crosses
Punnett square Another method for determining the
outcome of a genetic cross is to use
rules of probability
probability
Probability: likelihood of the occurrence
Probability:
of a certain event
of Rules of Probability
Rules
If
• Sum rule: If two events are mutually exclusive, the
probability that either of two events will occur is the
either
sum of their separate probabilities
p(A or B) = p(A) + p(B)
p(A
If
• Product rule: If two events are independent, the
probability that the two events will both occur is the
product of their separate probabilities
p(A and B) = p(A) * p(B)
p(A In a family of four children,
what is the probability that
all children are females?
The probability that a female child
is born is independent of whether
or not that child has any sisters,
therefore the product law applies. In a family of four children,
what is the probability that
all children are females?
The probability of each child being
female is ½. Therefore the
probability of four children being
all female is (1/2)4 or 1/16 The branching diagram

Answer:

= 1/4 RR, 1/2 Rr, 1/4 rr
R = 1/2 + 1/4 = 3/4, r = 1/4
• Rr x Rr
• Each offspring is independent, so the product rule is used for
combinations.
• A. all R Phenotype: 3/4 x 3/4 x 3/4 = 27/64
• B. all rr Genotype: 1/4 x 1/4 x 1/4 = 1/64 • C. With five offspring, what is the probability that 3 have the R
phenotype and 2 have the r phenotype? The Binomial Expansion

•
• p = probability of R
q = probability of r
p + q = 1 I.e. they are mutually exclusive
I.e.
n = number of trials (e.g., number of offspring) Expand
• Expand the binomial:
•
• • (p + q)5 = p5 + 5p4q + 10p3q2 + 10p2q3 + 5pq4 + q5 Each term is the probability of one combination of five offspring.

Independent Assortment Discovery of the Principle of Independent
Assortment came from Dihybrid Crosses

Assumption #1: Traits are on
different chromosomes Assumption #2:
There is
Independent
Assortment of alleles

Square or via
Branching (later) Thought Question
Assume Mendel did NOT obtain a 9:3:3:1
ratio in the F2.
Would you conclude that there is no such
thing as the 2nd Law? An example of the 2nd
Law from Chapter 2

chromosomes at
Anaphase I produces
genetic variation
m = maternal
p = paternal How predict progeny?
• Branching method: an easier, faster way
to predict progeny of crosses than
Punnett Square method, especially for
more than two traits • Independent assortment applies so can
apply the multiplication rule Branching method for Dihybrid Cross

used for combinations.

See p. 60 (Good tips) Goodnessoffit chisquare test
When two (or more!) genes segregate
independently, do we expect to see
exactly the ratios predicted by rules of
probability? NO !!!!!!!!
Why is there deviation between an
observed outcome and the expected
outcome? chisquare test
2 steps:
1. Determine χ2 value
χ2 = Σ (observedexpected)2/expected
2. Use the calculation of χ2 to determine a
probability (pvalue)
