Evolutionary Genetics 8.A researcher is trying to determine whether an RFLP marker is linked to a specific mouse disease gene. The RFLP marker identifies a simple DNA polymorphism between two inbred mouse strains: individuals from the albino strain BalbC are homozygous for a 3-kb DNA fragment; individuals from the black strain C57BL are homozygous for a 5-kb DNA fragment. The F 2 progeny from a cross between normal BalbC mice and diseased C57BL mice gave the following electrophoretic phenotypes: (a) Is the RFLP marker linked to the disease gene? Explain your answer. (b) What were the phenotype and genotype of the F 1 mice? If the RFLP marker and disease gene are linked, show the arrangement of disease/normal alleles and RFLP markers on the homologous chromosomes. 9. A gene for a recessive genetic disease in dogs ( dod/dod) is linked to an RFLP. A cross was carried out between a female of a strain affected by the DOD disease and a male from a pure-breeding strain, unaffected by the disease. The F 1 males and females were crossed (brother × sister) to produce an F 2 that included 12 puppies in their first litter, as shown in the pedigree below. The two haplotypes are 8 kb and 6 + 2 kb. What are the genotypes of the following numbered puppies? (Include both the dod and RFLP genotypes in your answer.): #5, #6, #10, #12, and #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.
