Why must you multiply the "titer on K" by 2 to get the recombination frequency?To account for double cross overBy what 2 different mechanisms could mutant phages change to become capable of lysing E. coli K?Recombination and reversionPiebald spotting is a condition found in humans in which there are patches of skin that lack pigmentation. The condition results from the inability of pigment-producing cells to migrate properly during development. Two adults with piebald spotting have one child who has this trait and a second child with normal skin pigmentation. a. Is the piebald spotting trait dominant or recessive? What information led you to this answer? (3 points)b. What are the genotypes of the parents?Two affected individuals have an affected child and a normal child. This outcome is not possible if the affected individuals were homozygous for a recessive allele conferring piebald spotting, and if the trait is controlled by a single gene. Therefore, the piebald trait must be the dominant phenotype.A mutant cucumber plant has flowers that fail to open when mature. Crosses can be done with this plant by manually opening and pollinating the flowers with pollen from another plant. When closed x open crosses were done, all the F1 progeny were open. The F2 plants were 145 open and 59 closed. A cross of closed x F1 gave 81 open and 77 closed. How is the closed trait inherited? What evidence led you to your conclusion?Closed trait is inherited as recessive trait.In humans, a dimple in the chin is a dominant characteristic.a. A man who does not have a chin dimple has children with a woman with a chin dimple whose mother lacked a dimple. What proportion of their children would be expected to have a chin dimple? Show the parents' genotypes. (2 points) b. A man with a chin dimple and a woman who lacks the dimple produce a child who lacks a dimple. What is the man's genotype? (1 point) c. A man with a chin dimple and a nondimpled woman produce eight children, all having chin dimples. Can you be certain of the man's genotype? Why or why not? (2 points)a) half the children are expected to have the dimple b) Aa c) AAa. How is earwax type inherited? b. Why are no 3:1 or 1:1 ratios present in the data shown?a) Earwax is inherited as a simple dominant or recessive Mendelian trait. Sticky is to be dominant and Dry is recessive. b) the Sticky individuals were unknown combinations of homozygous DD and heterozygous Dd individuals. Only the "Dry" d/d individuals can be expected to be true breeding.You have just purchased a black stallion. You mate him to a red mare, and she delivers twin foals, one red and one black. Can you tell from these results how color is inherited, assuming that alternative alleles of a single gene are involved? What crosses could you do to work this out?The Black Stallion was heterozygous, and the red are was recessive. Bb x bbIf you roll a die (singular of "dice"), what is the probability that you will roll: a. a "6"? b. an even number? c. a number divisible by 3? If you roll a pair of dice, what is the probability that you will roll: d. two "6"s? e. an even number on one and an odd number on the other? f. matching numbers?a) 1/6 b) 1/2 c) 1/3 d) 1/36 e) 1/2 f) 1/36How many genetically different eggs could be formed by women with the following genotypes? a. Aa bb CC DD b. AA Bb Cc dd c. Aa Bb cc Dd d. Aa Bb Cc Dd2, 4, 8, 16What is the probability of producing a child that will phenotypically resemble either one of the two parents in the following four crosses? How many phenotypically different kinds of progeny could potentially result from each of the following four crosses?
