Practice Genetics Problems Solve the genetics problems in the following slides based on the concepts of monohybrid cross, dihybrid cross, incomplete dominance, multiple alleles, sex-linked inheritance, autosomal dominant and recessive inheritance.
Genetic Problems Most individuals of a certain wild flower have white petals, but a few are blue. Crosses have shown that the blue color is due to a recessive allele. Use "W" for white and "w" for blue. a. What is the genotype of a blue-flowered plant and what gametes would it produce as a result of meiosis? d. If a blue-flowered plant is crossed with its white- flowered parent, what fraction of their offspring would have the genotype "ww"? e. If two blue-flowered plants cross, what fraction of their offspring will be blue? White? Most individuals of a certain wild flower have white petals, but a few are blue.

What is the genotype of a blue-flowered plant and what gametes would it produce as a result of meiosis? d. If a blue-flowered plant is crossed with its white- flowered parent, what fraction of their offspring would have the genotype "ww"? e. If two blue-flowered plants cross, what fraction of their offspring will be blue? White?
Incomplete Dominance Four o'clocks exhibit incomplete dominance. Thus, if a plant with red flowers is crossed with a plant with white flowers, the offspring will all produce pink flowers. What offspring would you expect if you crossed a red-flowered plant with a pink- flowered plant?
Dihybrid Cross In peas, the gene for tall plants (T) is dominant over the gene for dwarf plants (t) and round seed (R) is dominant over wrinkled seed (r). If one crosses a homozygous tall, wrinkled- seeded plant with a homozygous dwarf, round-seeded plant, what is the phenotype of the F1? The genotype of the F1? The phenotypic ratio of the F2?
