Consider Two Loci at the Same Time Independent Assortment Genes that are on different chromosomes assort independently. The following are four different metaphase I allignment patterns that are possible for a hypothetical species with a diploid chromosome number of 6. The alignment pattern shown in the diagram below will produce Sy and sY gametes. The alignment pattern shown in this diagram will produce SY and sy gametes.

Both of the patterns illustrated above are possible because S and Y are located on different chromosomes. Possible Gametes for Several Different Genotypes The table below shows the kinds of gametes that can be produced by several different kinds of
