Assigning genetic symbols and making hypothesis

Post by DerHaus » Tue Feb 26, 2008 10:35 pm

Hi everyone, I have here a set of data showing the phenotypes of a same generation of Drosophila. What genetic symbols should I assign to the alleles involved and what null hypothesis and ratio should I make for this mode of interitance of genes from this data set?

wild type, males 87
wild type, females 171
orange eyes, males 27
orange eyes, females 51
black body, males 96
orange eyes, black body, males 18

Since there isn't any black body females and orange eye/black body females, I believe it is sexed inheritance. What else about the mode of inheritance can I tell from it?
