Unformatted text preview: Biol241 2012 Quiz 2 (20 points) Name:__________________________ Purdue ID:__________________________ 1) Assume that three pairs of alleles are found in Drosophila: +/x, +/y, and +/z. As shown by the symbols, each non
wild allele is recessive to its wild
type allele. A cross between female heterozygous at these three loci and homozygous recessive males (xxyyzz) yields the following progeny phenotypes: + + + 31 x y z 38 x + z 430 + y + 441 x y + 27 + + z 32 x + + 1 + y z 0 a. What is the gene order on the chromosome (3 points)? The order is x z y (y z x). b. Calculate the map distances (in map units) between the genes and draw a map (4 points). The distance between x and z is (27+32+1)/1000=0.06 or 6 m. u. The distance between z and y is (31+38+1)/1000=0.07 or 7 m. u. x 6 m.u. z 7 m.u. y

a. What is the genetic distance (in map units) between a and centromere (2 points)? The genetic distance is 1/2*(1+8+1)/100=0.05 or 5 m.u. b. What is the genetic distance (in map units) between b and centromere (2 points)? The genetic distance is 1/2*(18+8+1)/100=0.135 or 13.5 m.u. c. Are a and b linked? If yes, what is the genetic distance between a and b (2 points)? NPD is much less than PD, thus a and b are linked. The genetic distance between a and b is (½*(18+1+1)+1)/100=0.11 or 11 m.u. d. Draw a map of a , b, and centromere(s) (2 points). c 5 m.u. a 11 m.u. b
