Gametes, what am I doing wrong?

Postby MrJules » Mon Dec 05, 2011 9:12 pm

Hi everyone.

I'm currently trying to learn how to create combine possible gametes when using the "//" (example: A//a B//b) -convention.

Instead of using words to explain my issue, I have drawn, how I interpret the concept:

When they are coupled I believe that possible gametes (no crossovers or so) are the ones to the right of the arrow in line number 1.
When uncoupled, they can combine freely like in line number 2.

Is this reasoning correct or completely bollocks?

yes, it looks fine, just do not forget, that in any case, the gamete must contain both genes, i.e. a and b, no matter, what allele

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
