Genetics

In order to determine the phenotype of an individual who expresses a dominnat trait, you would cross that individual with who?

A person who is Homozygous recess for that trait

All the offspring of a cross between a red flowered plant and a white flowered plant have pink flowers. What does this mean?

The allele for the red flowers is incompletely dominant tot he allele for white flowers.

Locus

The name given to a the specific location of a gene on a chromosome

Hypophosphatemia (vitamin D- resistant rickets) is inherited as an x-linked dominant. What would be the outcome of a cross between a homozygous recessive woman and a man with hypophoshatemia?

all the daughters and none of their sons exhibit hypophosphatemia

An individual with (naturally curly hair and an individual with (naturally) straight hair mate, all of their offspring have (naturally) wavy hair

incomplete dominance

The recombination frequency between gene B and Gene C is 11% the recombination frequency between gene B and gene D is 5%. The recombination frequency between gene C and gene D is 15%. The arrangement of these genes on a linkage map is DBC

...

What is the key to the recognition of codominance?

AA x aa will produce what offspring?

Heterozygous

What is the probability that a daughter will inherit an X-linked recessive trait from her father?

Dd

The wild type is the trait most commonly found where?

nature
