Unformatted text preview: (4) Is this an example of complementation or of failure to complement? Problem 2. You have 3 turtles, each with a mutation that causes them to have a strange polka dotted pattern on their shells. You don’t know if the mutations are in the same gene or in different genes. Assume that all 3 mutations are homozygous recessive. a) Which crosses would you set up to find out if the mutations are in the same gene or in different genes? b) You discover that turtle1 and turtle3 have mutations in the same gene, while turtle1 and turtle 2 have mutations in different genes. What phenotype would you expect from crosses between: Turtle3 x turtle2 Turtle1 x turtle3...

    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.
