Forward Genetics vs. Reverse Genetics
After we go through that pathway, how do you know that the sequence is the right
We use reverse genetics! Use similar organisms

Question: What is the maximum number of alleles that 1 human can have?
Population will have 40 but we only can carry two at the same time. On the same locus
there is only two alleles.
Important to remember that when we say the i

Question: Based on the pedigree above, which inheritance pattern can be ruled out?
Answer: none of the above
Autosomal dominant and recessive cant be ruled out
X-linked dominant and recessive cant be ruled out
You need to think in a way where
