Hello, any help in the following question (all subparts) will be greatly appreciated. Learning for an upcoming
exam. Thank you!
QUESTION: In pigs, eye color is a multi-step linear pathway. Three mutations are available. They are all autosomal. The three pure breeding lines are crossed to generate F1. The F1 are self crossed to generate F2.
Mutant Crosses: F1 F2
White x Green Red 9Red:4white:3green
Green x Blue Red 9Red:4Green:3Blue
White x Blue Red 8 white : 16Red:8 Blue
A. Explain the white x green cross. Are there one or two mutant gene in this cross. Are the genes linked or unlinked. Draw a pathway.
B. Explain the Green x Blue cross. Are there one or two mutant gene in this cross. Are the genes linked or unlinked. Draw a pathway.
C. Explain the white x blue cross. Are there one or two mutant genes in this cross. Are the genes linked or unlinked. Draw a pathway.
D. Combine the results to draw a complete pathway for eye color in pigs.
