8. When working on a genetics experiment with Drosophila, you can count the offspring from a dihybrid cross between an F1 female fly who has wild type eyes and vestigial wings and an F1 male who has white eyes but normal wings. An F1 female is then crossed to a true breeding male who has white eyes and vestigial wings. Calculate the recombination frequency between eye color and wing traits for that generation of offspring based on the following count (4.0 pts):

 

72 wild type (red eyes, normal wings)

910 wild type eyes, vestigial wings 

945 white eyes, wild type wings 

82 white eyes, vestigial wings
