genes located close together on the same chromosome are refereed to as _________genes and generally _______
linked.....do not sort independently during meiosis
in tomatoes, cut-leaf shape (C) is dominant over potato-leaf shape (c), and purple stem (P) is dominant over green stem (p). In the table below, the result of mating producing an F1 is given:
PpCc X PpCc
in humans, the _____________ determines the sex of the offspring because __________
male....the male can contribute either an X or Y chromosome
one gene is found to code for a ceratain structural protein. In homozygous recessive individuals, a defective allele results in poor development of cartilage between bones (and thus sore joints), droopy skin (due to insufficient collagen formation), and a weak underdeveloped nose (lack of cartilage). This phenomenon would be best clasified as
GgTt pea plants can produce ___________type(s) of gametes, but a ggtt can produce __________type(s) of gametes
a carrier of a genetic disorder who does not show symptoms is most likely to be ______ to transmit it to offspring
heterozygous for the trait and able
in humans, skin color ranges from almost white to very dark brown along a very gradual continuum. this is primarily due to genetics and is linked to several independent genes. what types of pattern of inheritance describes this?
Mendel's principle of independent assortment states that
each pair of alleles segregates independently during gamete formation
in sheep, eye color is controlled by a single gene with two alleles. when a homozygous brown eyed sheep is crossed with a homozygous yellow-eyed sheep, tan-eyed offspring are produced. if the tan-eyed sheep are mated with each other, what percent of their offspring will most likely have brown eyes?
which of the following terms refer to the situation where a single phenotypic characteristic is determined by the additive effects of two or more genes
jane knows she is a carrier for Tay Sachs disease ( a recessive autosomal disorder), but has no idea whether her husband is. they want to know what the odds of having a chile with the disease will be. given that the incidence of carriers for Tay Sachs is 1/30, and it is homozygous recessive genetic disorder, what are the odds that her chill will have Tay Sachs Disease.
which of the following is not true of pedigree
it uses molecular genetics techniques to determine genetic relationships
assuming that the probability of having a female child is 50% and the probability of having a male child is also 50%, what is the probability that the couple's first born child is female and second-born child a male.
the vast majority of people afflicted with recessive disorders are born to parents who were
not affected at all by the disease
the chromosome theory of inheritance states that
the behavior of chromosomes during meiosis and fertilization accounts for patterns of inheritance
in general, the frequency that crossing over occurs between two linked genes depends on
how far apart they are on the chromosome
in peas, the trait for tall plants is dominant (T) and short is recessive (t). The trait for yellow seed color is dominant (Y) and green is recessive (y). A cross between the two plants resulted in 296 tall yellow plants and 104 tall green plants. Which of the following are most likely the genotypes of the parents
TtYy X TTYy
both aminocentesis and chorionic villus sampling allow for __________ and ________of the fetus so that it can be tested for abnormalities
which of the following kinds of data could be used to map the relative position of three genes on a chromosome
the frequencies with which the corresponding traits occur together in offspring
how might a lethal dominant allele avoid elimination from a population of people
1) by being non-lethal in a heterozygous form
2) by arising later in life
imagine that beak color in a finch species is controlled by a single gene. you mate a finch homozygous for orange (pigmented) beak with a finch homozygous for ivory (unpigmented) beak and get numerous offspring, all of which have a pale, ivory-orange beak. This pattern of color expression is most likely to be an example of
recessive sex-linked human conditions include which of the following
red-green color blindness, muscular dystrophy, and hemophilia
what is the normal complement of a sex chromosome in human males
on X chromosome and on Y chromosome
why are sex-linked condition more common in men than in women
men need inherit only one copy of the recessive allele for the condition to be fully expressed
Dr.Smiths parents have normal hearing. however dr.smith has an inherited form of deafness. deafness is a recessive trait that is associated with the abnormal allele d. the normal allele at this locus, associated with normal hearing, is D. smiths parents could have which of the following genotypes
Dd and Dd
Huntington's disease is due to an autosomal dominant allele. if a heterozygous male marries a normal female, what percentage of offspring will have huntingtons
which of the following best explains why dominant alleles that cause lethal disorders are less common than recessive alleles that cause lethal disorders
most individuals carrying a lethal dominant allele have the disorder and die before they reproduce, whereas individuals carrying a lethal recessive allele are more likely to be healthy and reproduce
what is meant by the statement that "male bees are fahterless"
male bees develop from unfertilized eggs
what is a testcross
a mating between an individual of unknown genotype and an individual homozygous recessive for the trait of interest
in a cross of a purple-flowered, short-stemmed plant with a yellow-flowered, long-stemmed plant, the expected phenotypic ration is 1 purple-short:1 purple long: 1 yellow short:1 yellow long. when you do the actual cross you observe a 5 purple short:1 purple long:1 yellow short:5 yellow long phenotypic ratio which of the following explains these results.
the genes are linked
which set of parents could NOT be the parents of a child with type O blood
father type AB, mother type O
a couple had five children, all sons. if the woman gives birth to a sixth child, what is the probability that the sixth child will be a son
