A halfmoon, plakat, crowntail male is chosen to breed with a crowntail female. She is
homozygous dominant for the halfmoon locus and heterozygous for the plakat locus.
a. What is the male's genotype?
b. What is the female's genotype?
c. Consider first the Halfmoon locus. What genotype will all of their offspring have? What is
their phenotype?
d. Next, consider the Crowntail locus. What genotype will all of their offspring have? What is
their phenotype?
e. Finally, consider the plakat locus. What genotypes might their offspring have? What
phenotypic ratios would you expect?
f. What proportion of their offspring will be crowntail and plakat? (Hint: you don't need a
Punett square. Assuming the genes assort independently, your answers to d and e are all
you need.
