Re: Genetics Hard problem!

... information in Experiment II, estimate the minimum genetic map distance between the two genetic loci. (Note: One genetic map unit (m.u.) gives a recombinant frequency (RF) of 1 percent.) I scanned the whole passage in the attachment. Answer is 34 m.u. This is what I did: B+/ba x ba/ba (parental ...

Calculating genetic distance

... marker A were 60 CC, 10 CL, and 4 LL. Calculate the genetic distance (cM) between marker A and pass1. I used the equation: Distance = (Number of recombinant chromosomes)/(Recombinant chromosomes+parental)) x 100 and got 13.51%, however, this does not seem to be the correct answer. Can anyone ...

meiome and genome

I thought eukaryote genetic inheritance came simply from the adding together of (recombinant) haploid chromosomes in the new zygote. But there is a lot of RNA involved? A crowd of unique proteins and mRNA in addition to the chromosomes in the gamete? See this: It ...
