Answer the following questions in fewer than 100 words: Describe the phenotypes that you observed in the F1 cross.


Answer the following questions in fewer than 100 words:
1. Describe the phenotypes that you observed in the F1 cross.
All F1 offspring from this cross between homozygous parents should show wild-type phenotype, although the genotype of offspring will be heterozygous for brown eye, the wild eye trait is dominant.

2. Describe the phenotypes that you observed in the testcross.
The wild-type trait is a dominant gene; therefore, all F1 offspring will have the wild –type phenotype.


3. What was the phenotypic ratio for the offspring resulting from this testcross?
Based on Mendelian genetics,
4. Based on this phenotypic ratio, was the F1 wild-type female homozygous or heterozygous for the eye color allele? Explain your answer.
5. Based on this phenotypic ratio, was the F1 wild-type female homozygous or heterozygous for the body color allele? Explain your answer.
