AP Biology Laws of Probability Probability & Genetics

2
AP Biology Probability & Genetics Calculating probability of making a specific gamete is just like calculating the probability in flipping a coin probability of tossing heads? 50% probability making a P gamete… Outcome of 1 toss has no impact on the outcome of the next toss probability of tossing heads each time? 50% probability making a P gamete each time?

3
AP Biology Rule of Addition Chance that an event can occur 2 or more different ways SUM of the separate probabilities Use for heterozygous possibilities Two ways to be heterozygous: Pp or pP Key word is “or”. Ex: Probability of getting 2 or a 6 on the roll of a die. 1/6 + 1/6 = 2/6 = 1/3 Ex: Probability of having offspring with dominant phenotype? PP or Pp or pP ¼+ ¼ + ¼ = ¾

4
AP Biology Rule of multiplication Chance that 2 or more independent events will occur together probability that 2 coins tossed at the same time will land heads up probability of pp or PP offspring Ex: Probability of getting a head and a tail with two different coins. ½ x ½ = 1/4 Key word is “and”

5
AP Biology Calculating Probability of Pp x Pp ½ x ½ = ¼ = PP ½ x ½ = ¼ = pp What about Pp?

6
AP Biology Calculating Dihybrid Probability Rule of multiplication application with Dihybrid crosses: heterozygous parents — YyRr probability of producing yyrr? probability of producing y gamete = 1/2 probability of producing r gamete = 1/2 probability of producing yr gamete = 1/2 x 1/2 = 1/4 probability of producing a yyrr offspring = 1/4 x 1/4 = 1/16
