Degrees of Dominance Complete Dominance Homozygous Dominant and Heterozygous are indistinguishable Monohybrid Phenotypic Ratio 3:1 Incomplete Dominance Heterozygotes display a blended phenotype Monohybrid Phenotypic Ratio 1:2:1 Codominance

Heterozygotes display both traits (separate, distinguishable) Monohybrid Phenotypic Ratio - 1:2:1 Degrees of Dominance Not cut and dry Organism Biochemical Molecular

Multiple Alleles Many alleles for one gene Blood Type Example: If a male with blood type AB has children with a female with blood type O, what is the predicted phenotypic ratio of their children?

Example: In corn, a dominant allele I inhibits kernel colour, while the recessive allele i permits colour when homozygous. At a different locus, the dominant allele P causes purple kernel colour, while the homozygous genotype pp causes red kernels. If plants heterozygous at both loci are crossed, what will be the phenotypic ratio of the offspring? Epistasis Example: In corn, a dominant allele I inhibits kernel colour, while the recessive allele i permits colour when homozygous. At a different locus, the dominant allele P causes purple kernel colour, while the homozygous genotype pp causes red kernels. If plants heterozygous at both loci are crossed, what will be the phenotypic ratio of the offspring? (no colour=yellow) IiPp x IiPp Phenotypes:

The height of spike weed is a result of polygenetic inheritance involving three genes, each of which can contribute an additional 5cm to the base height of the plant, which is 10cm. The tallest plant (AABBCC) can reach a height of 40cm. A) If a tall plant (AABBCC) is crossed with a base-height plant (aabbcc), what is the height of the F1 plants? B) How many phenotypic classes will there be in the F 2? c) What is the probability of seeing a 20cm plant in the F2 generation? A) If a tall plant (AABBCC) is crossed with a base-height plant (aabbcc), what is the height of the F1 plants? The parental cross produced 25cm tall F1 plants, all AaBbCc plants with 3 units of 5 cm added to the base height of 10cm. B) How many phenotypic classes will there be in the F2?

General Rule: number of phenotypic classes resulting from a cross of heterozygotes equals the number of alleles involved plus one. (AaBbCc ) 6 alleles + 1 = 7 6 dominant alleles: 40 cm 5: 35 cm 4: 30 cm 3: 25 cm 2: 20 cm 1: 15 cm 0: 10 cm c) What is the probability of seeing a 20cm plant in the F2 generation? Phenotype: 20cm Genotype: 2 dominant alleles AaBbCc x AaBbCc AAbbcc x x = 1/64 AaBbcc x x = 1/16 = 4/64

AabbCc x x = 1/16 = 4/64 aaBBcc x x = 1/64 aaBbCc x x = 1/16 = 4/64 aabbCC x x = 1/64 Different ways of getting the same thing add! 15/64 Lethal Alleles Recessive lethal allele 2:1 ratio if lethal before birth Cystic fibrosis Dominant lethal allele
