Unformatted text preview: rr = 0.034 x 1000 rr = 34 round-eared = 34 x 0.5 = 17 C) A deadly ear-ache pandemic sweeps through the Vulcans planet. However, heterozygosity at the pointy-eared locus confers resistance to the disease, allowing only those individuals to survive and reproduce (homozygotes for either allele die). Determine the proportion of pointy-eared individuals in the first generation of offspring from the survivors. q = 0.5 q 2 = 0.25 rr = 0.25 round-eared = 0.25 x 0.5 = 0.125 pointy-eared = 1 0.125 = 0.875...
