Combining Probabilities 9:3:3:1 can be obtained in a dihybrid cross by first calculating probabilities for two monohybrid crosses and then combining their probabilities. probability of round = 3/4 probability of wrinkled = 1/4 probability of yellow = 3/4 probability of green = 1/4 probability of round and yellow = 3/4 X 3/4 = 9/16 probability of round and green = 3/4 X 1/4 = 3/16 probability of wrinkled and yellow = 1/4 X 3/4 = 3/16 probability of wrinkled and green = 1/4 X 1/4 = 1/16 Other Crosses The following steps can be used to determine the expected number of offspring from any cross. 1. Determine the kinds of gametes that can be produced by each parent. 2. Determine all of the possible combinations of gametes that can be produced. A Punnett square may be useful for this. If you use a Punnett square, the gametes of one parent are written across the top and the gametes

The number of cells in the square is therefore equal to the number of gametes that one parent can produce multiplied by the number of gametes that the other parent can produce. Example: Let T = tall, t = short F = inflated, f = constricted List the phenotypes produced by the following cross: TtFf X ttFf Step 1: List the kind of gametes produced by each parent. TtFf can produced TF, Tf, tF and tf. ttFf can produce tF and tf. Step 2: Construct a Punnett square. The Punnett square above shows that eight different genotypes are produced. The phenotype for each is listed in the table below. Genotype Phenotype tTFF, tTFf, tTfF tall, inflated tTff tall constricted ttFF, ttFf, ttfF short inflated ttff short, constricted...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
