drosophila experiment help

Postby jftustin42 » Thu Nov 15, 2012 10:19 pm

I am in general genetics and in the midst of conducting a Drosophila melangaster fruit fly cross breeding experiment. I have two mutations: ruffled edge wing in one stock, and reduced eye size in a different stock. I am stuck. I would like some help, please. Which one is autosomal and which is sexual? Of the two, are they recessive or dominant? Thank you!

Shouldn't you provide more information?

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

The previously described mutations were observed in the F1 groups (one vial with the body mutation and one vial with the eye mutation). Then we cross bred the two batches, using the males of the body stock to virgin females of the eye stock, and vice versa (everyone had different flies with different mutations). It is the F2 that I need help with. I cannot tell which mutation is sexual or autosomal and whether they are dominant or recessive. Can anyone please help???

You need to count F2 and provide the numbers/phenotype first.
