If genes on different chromosomes assort independently because of the independent segregation of homologs during meiosis, how do genes on the same chromosome assort ? w y w+ y+ w w+ y+ y w+ w y y+ w+ y w y+ w+ y+ w y gametes 2
Image of page 2
Some genes on the same chromosome assort together more often than not In dihybrid crosses, departures from a 1:1:1:1 genotypic ratio of F 1 gametes indicates that the two genes are on the same chromosome - not completely independent of each other -can see this in F 2 offspring In other words, they are in close proximity to one another and therefore tend to assort together = genetically linked 3

We can tell if genes are linked by observing the F 2 generation or by pedigree analysis Law of independent assortment predicts all 4 phenotypes will occur in a dihybrid testcross (4 types of F 1 gametes). The departure from a 1:1:1:1 genotypic ratio indicates that the two genes are on the same chromosome -not completely independent of each other When genes are linked, parental combinations outnumber recombinant types 8
Image of page 8
To keep track of parental allelic combinations, we can represent the genotype of the F 1 as: vg b / vg + b + or vg b Represents alleles from father Instead of vg + vg b + b Represents alleles from mother vg + b + 9

What will the F 2 generation look like? Since the genes for eye colour and wing size are both on the X-chromosome, you might expect the F 1 female to produce only wm (from P female) and w + m + (from P male) gametes Therefore you would expect F 2 males to be ONLY white-eye/mini wing or red-eye/full wing wm /Y w + m + /Y 1:1 But . wm/w+m+ wm /Y 12

Not 1:1:1:1 wm /Y w + m + /Y wm + /Y w + m /Y wm/w+m+ wm /Y Recall: only concerned with phenotypes for classing 13

    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.
