Unformatted text preview: unlinked genes. 8. Distinguish between parental and recombinant phenotypes. 9. Explain why linked genes do not assort independently. Explain how crossing over can unlink genes. 10.Explain why Mendel did not find linkage between seed color and flower color, despite the fact that these genes are on the same chromosome. 11.Explain the effect of multiple crossovers between loci. 12.Explain how nondisjunction can lead to aneuploidy. 13.Define trisomy, triploidy, and polyploidy. Explain how these major chromosomal changes occur and describe possible consequences. 14.Distinguish among deletions, duplications, inversions, and translocations. 15.Explain why extranuclear genes are not inherited in a Mendelian fashion....
