Genotype to Phenotype

Postby ezahemalf » Mon Jun 21, 2010 10:15 am

i really need help with this one. please help me!
our teacher asked us how to get the phenotype of a genotype.
it has something to do with converting
ACTCGGCTA.
it wasn't quite clear because he was like making an overview of the subject.

I don't think it has really something to do with converting DNA/RNA/protein sequences, at least in the macroscopic view. More likely you need to know the alleles of your gene and their relation.

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

oh. the alleles are those heterozygous and homozygous and then you have to use the punnet square right?

btw. thanks for your reply. really, it just saved me. :>

well, the Punnet square is for crossing. If you want to know phenotype only of one organism, you just need to know the genotype and relation of these alleles ;)
