BIS101/Draper Homework01 KEY 1 8. A plant grower wants to establish his own line of roses with five important commercial characteristics. He has two pure breeding lines. The first produces long, red roses that have strong fragrance and grow as single flowers at the end of the main stem (terminal growth). His other pure breeding line produces bunches of white roses on short stems that have no fragrance, and grow from multiple points along the main stem (axial growth). Previous genetic investigation shows that each characteristic results from a single gene and that the genes assort independently. The grower knows that long stems (L), strong fragrance (F), axial growth (A), and growth in bunches (B) are dominant traits. Rose flower color is an incomplete dominant trait with R 1 R 1 plants red, R 1 R 2 pink, and R 2 R 2 white. a. Give the genotypes of each pure breeding plant and the genotype of the F 1 .
