Genetics Problem III

Post by bionewbie » Thu Jan 26, 2006 12:19 am

Another genetics problem (I will eventually get the hang of this *fingers crossed*):

Q) All human female "carrier" who is heterozygous for the recessive, sex-linked trait causing red-green blindness marries a normal male. What proportion of their male progeny will have red-green colour blindness?
