4 Is the inheritance of one character affected by the inheritance of another? P Phenotypesx(Pure Bred) F 1 PhenotypesAll(Selfed) F 2 Phenotypes Seedcolour YellowGreenTOTALRATIO SeedRound shapeWrinkled TOTAL RATIO © 2007 Paul Billiet ODWSODWS

5 A dihybrid cross can be treated as two separate monohybrid crosses The expected probability of each type of seed can be calculated: Probability of an F 2 seed being round = Probability of an F 2 seed being wrinkled = Probability of an F 2 seed being yellow = Probability of an F 2 seed being green = © 2007 Paul Billiet ODWSODWS

6 Therefore Probability of an F 2 seed being round and yellow = ¾ x ¾ = 9/16 =56.25% Probability of an F 2 seed being round and green = Probability of an F 2 seed being wrinkled and yellow = Probability of an F 2 seed being wrinkled and green = © 2007 Paul Billiet ODWSODWS

7 Predicting how many seeds we could expect to get in a sample We could expect What Mendel observed 556 x 9/16 round yellow x 3/16 round green x 3/16 wrinkled yellow x 1/16 wrinkled green32 © 2007 Paul Billiet ODWSODWS

8 THE LAW OF INDEPENDENT ASSORTMENT It appears that the inheritance of seed shape has no influence over the inheritance of seed colour The two characters are inherited ___________________ The pairs of alleles that control these two characters assort themselves independently © 2007 Paul Billiet ODWSODWS

9 Mendel & Meiosis The pairs of chromosomes could orientate in different ways at Anaphase 1 © 2007 Paul Billiet ODWSODWS
