This can be seen from the test cross data for the following three loci. from AB ab x ab ab Phenotypes 1159 1017 17 12 12 2205 BC bc x bc bc Phenotypes AB 770 ab 716 Ab 401 nonparentals aB 318 aB 2205 BC bc Bc Linked or Linked bC Unlinked?

Rodriguez 48 Chi-square test for linkage Chi-square ­ The likelihood of linkage can be tested using the The Chi-square test (page 127). The test begins by Chi-square making a hypothesis. For example: making q “ The B, C loci are unlinked and located on the separate chromosomes.” chromosomes.” ­ Next, the Chi-square formula is used to compare the Next, observed number of progeny types to the expected number of progeny types, assuming independent assortment (1:1:1:1). assortment 2 χ= 2 Σ (0 - E) E 0 = observed progeny types E = expected progeny types based on the hypothesis Σ = sum of calculations for each progeny types sum BIS101­001, Spring 2013—Genes and Gene Expression, R.L.
