1 © 2009 NHS National Genetics Education and Development CentreGenetics and Genomics for Healthcare Segregation of Alleles in X-linked inheritance This PowerPoint file contains a number of slides that may be useful for teaching of genetics concepts. You may use these slides and their contents for non-commercial educational purposes. This presentation includes: Segregation of alleles in X-linked inheritance DMD gene tracking in a family X chromosome tracking in a pedigree A pedigree example of an X-linked condition (SCID), showing the inheritance pattern.

The pattern shows that this is the X-linked form of this rare disease. The mother, grandmother and great- grandmother of the proband are obligate carriers. His sister, two aunts and female cousin are at risk of being carriers.
