Solved by a verified expert:Gene Segregation Problem Set
A researcher studied six independently assorting genes in a
plant. Each gene has a dominant and a recessive allele: R black stem, r red
stem; D tall plant, d dwarf plant; C full pods, c constricted pods; O round
fruit, o oval fruit; H hairless leaves, h hairy leaves; W purple flower, w
white flower. From the cross

(a) how many kinds of gametes can be formed by P1 ?
(b) How many genotypes are possible among the progeny of
(c) How many phenotypes are possible among the progeny?
(d) What is the probability of obtaining the Rr Dd cc Oo hh
ww genotype in the progeny?
(e) What is the probability of obtaining a black, dwarf,
constricted, oval, hairy, purple phenotype in the progeny?
Mendel testcrossed pea plants grown from yellow, round F1
seeds to plants grown from green, wrinkled seeds and obtained the following results:
31 yellow, round; 26 green, round; 27 yellow, wrinkled; and 26 green, wrinkled.
Are these results consistent with the hypothesis that seed color and seed
texture are controlled by independently assorting genes, each segregating two
5. GIVEN THAT AN ORGANISM HAS 4 METACENTRIC AND 8
TELOCENTRIC CHROMOSOMES BEFORE MEIOTIC DIVISION:
MANY CHROMOSOMES DOES THE ORGANISM HAVE IN PROPHASE I?
MANY CHROMATIDES DOES THE ORGANISM HAVE IN PROPHASE II?
6. GIVEN THAT AN ORGANISM HAS 10 METACENTRIC CHROMOSOMES
BEFORE MEIOTIC DIVISION:
MANY CHROMOSOMES DOES THE ORGANISM HAVE IN PROPHASEII ?
MANY CHROMATIDS DOES THE ORGANISM HAVE IN PROPHASE I IF ALL CHROMOSOMES WERE

DIFFERENT KINDS OF GAMETES CAN IT PRODUCE? NAME THEM.
