An individual is heterozygous for 4 genes, eye, ear, nose and throat.
Eye and ear are linked and present on chromosome 11. Nose and throat are
linked in chromosome 16. Given that a child of this individual inherits eh
eye1 allele, what is the change that they will also inherit the eye2 allele from
the same parent? (clicker) (chromosomes in notebook)
0% only get one allele from each parent
Linked Genes 14.8
Genes that are one the same chromosome
They do not assort independently (see gamete formation
Dihybrid cross (assuming linked genes)-
Reduces variation in offspring
Takes out non parental
Round yellow x wrinkled green
all round yellow seeded
RY or ry

Given that a child of this individual inherits the eye1 allele, what is the
chance that they will also inherit the throat8 allele from the same parent?
50%.. or less?
