17. What is the key gene that, when expressed, will cause a Drosophila to develop into a female? a. ANT-C b. BCD c. Sxl d. BX-C e. None of the above 18. In humans, a protein encoded by gene A on chromosome 13 binds to a region upstream from gene B on chromosome 17 and blocks the transcription of gene B. Which of the following describes how the region upstream from gene B acts on gene B? a. trans b. cis c. positive control d. both a and c e. both b and c 19. You are studying a population of voles that show 100% positive assortative mating by phenotype. When you measure the genotype frequencies of the population you get the following data. What will the frequency of Aa be in the next generation?
