generation is Gg x Gg, resulting in a 3:1 phenotype (3 G_ : 1 gg). If any of this is unclear, do the Punnett square. Detailed answer for part a) There are a total of 8023 plants. Of these 8023, there’s an expected 3:1 ratio of yellow:green plants. Therefore, we expect: 8023 x 0.75 = 6017.25 yellow plants 8023 x 0.25 = 2005.75 green plants We observe 6000 yellow plants, and thus also observe 2023 green plants. So our “e” is 6017.25 yellow plants and 2005.75 green plants. Our “o” in part a) is 6000 yellow plants and 2023 green plants. Do the chi-squared: Σ (o-e) 2 /e (6000-6017.25) 2 /6017.25 + (2023-2005.75) 2 /2005.75 = 0.049 + 0.148 = 0.197 = chi-squared statistic Use the chi-squared table to find the p-value where the calculated chi-squared statistic falls. Remember, degrees of freedom (df) = # categories – 1; since there are two categories (phenotypes), the df = 1. You’ll find that the p-value for calculated chi-squared statistic for part a) is somewhere between 0.75 and 0.5. (Note: you do NOT need to calculate the exact p-value for the corresponding chi-squared statistic for this class.) Since the p-value is between 0.75 and 0.5, the null hypothesis (H o ) is accepted.

    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.
