(T/F) Linkage always occurs when two loci are on the same chromosome (from the practical standpoint of assortment and not the actual physical linkage).
(T/F) The cross GE/ge x ge/ge produces the following progeny: GE/ge 250, ge/ge 250, gE/ge 250, Ge/ge 250. From these data one could conclude that the G and E loci assort independently (are unlinked).
The cross GE/ge x ge/ge produces the following progeny: GE/ge 97, ge/ge 103, gE/ge 404, Ge/ge 396. From these data one could conclude that the recombinant progeny are gE/ge and Ge/ge.
