Chapter 11 Independent Assortment, Segregation and an Introduction to Probability

You Must Know The law of independent assortment and the law of segregation. (This is review from last chapter.) The addition and multiplication rules. (You will get more practice using these later.)

Independent Assortment of Chromosomes Possibility 1 Possibility 2 Two equally probable arrangements of chromosomes at metaphase I Metaphase II Daughter cells Combination 1Combination 2Combination 3Combination 4 The number of combinations possible when chromosomes assort independently into gametes is 2 n, where n is the haploid number.

Duplicated pair of homologous chromosomes Pair of homologous chromosomes in diploid parent cell Chromosomes duplicate Diploid cell with duplicated chromosomes Homologous chromosomes separate Sister chromatids separate Meiosis I Meiosis II Haploid cells with unduplicated chromosomes 1 2 Law of segregation: The two alleles for each character separate from each other during gamete formation.

Ex. (1/2)(1/2)=1/4 There is a 25% chance that you will get RR.

Ex. ¼ + ¼ = ½ or There is a 50% chance that you will get RR or rr.
