Fortunately, their second child, Lisa was less trouble. Six years later, Maggie was born. Bart reunited with one of his first loves, Reverend Loovejoy’s daughter, and they got married at the Krusty Burger in Springfield. As Lisa grew up, so did her friends and she eventually married her long-time friend, Ralph Wiggum. Their on, Langdon, was named after Lisa’s first crush. Despite her inability to speak, Maggie married Todd Flanders (diddly-doodly) and their son was named Noah (a name chosen by Ned). You are the geneticist hired by the Simpson family to trace the recessive “four finger disease” throughout the family. You have been able to collect the data given below. Your job is to create a pedigree and determine the genotypes of each family member. You will present this pedigree to Lisa so she can then help her family predict the possibility of having more four fingered children. The following have 4 fingers: Langdon, Noah, Homer, Penelope, Mr. Burns, Troy, Bart and the Comic Book Guy 1. Draw the pedigree (with names) 2. Label the generations and individuals 3. Determine genotypes of ALL family members as best you can Are there any family members whose genotypes you cannot determine? If Patty and Troy have children, what is the probability they will have a child with four fingers?

    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.
