Need help with genetics test review

Pea pod shape is controlled by a one gene - two allele genetic system. Full pod shape is completely dominant to constricted pea pod shape. Pea plant size is also controlled by a one gene – two allele system with tall size being completely dominant to dwarf size. Given a plant was heterozygous for pod shape and homozygous recessive for plant size

a. What is the phenotype of this plant?

b. If this plant was crossed to a dihybrid (heterozygote), what would be the phenotypic ratio of pod shape among the progeny?

c. What would be the phenotypic ratio of plant size?

d. What would be the phenotypic ratio of pod shape and plant size together?


Q2: A pure breeding, tall pea plant white flowers is crossed with a pure-breeding short plant with red flowers. The F1 plants are tall with red flowers. When allowed to self-fertilise themselves, these F1 plants produce the following F2: 326 tall, red; 104 tall, white; 117 short red and 29 short white. Explain these data; indicating genotypes of the parents and the different F2 phenotypes. What is the expected numbers in the various F2 classes? Test the goodness of fit between the data and your hypothesis using χ2.






Q3:In any breeding program (i.e. for cattle, horses, dogs guinea pigs), which is more easily eliminated from a population; a trait expressed by a completely dominant allele, or a trait expressed by a completely recessive allele?
