Unformatted text preview: g the parental phenotypes) approach 50%, it is difficult to distinguish between independent assortment (interchromosomal recombination) and intrachromosomal recombination between two "linked" loci. This can be seen from the test cross data for the following three loci.

Rodriguez 2012 Chi-square test for linkage The likelihood of linkage can be tested using the Chi-square test (page 127). The test begins by making a hypothesis. For example: q " The B, C loci are unlinked and located on the separate chromosomes." Next, the Chi-square formula is used to compare the observed number of progeny types to the expected number of progeny types, assuming independent assortment (1:1:1:1). 2 = 2 0 = observed progeny types E = expected progeny types based on the hypothesis = sum of calculations for each progeny types March 19, 2012 BIS101001, Spring 2012--Genes and Gene Express...
