trihybrid ratios

Post by lbc1127 » Thu Apr 13, 2006 10:40 pm

alright i am doing a chi sqaure analysis for my genetics class. but before i can procede, i need to know what the expected results would be between a heterozygous and a homozygous recessive plant in a trihybrid cross.what would the ratio be?? i can't for the life of me figure this out..PLEASE HELP!!!

is there an expected ratio for a trihybrid cross between a heterozygous and a homozygous recessive plant? i only need to know the ratio. ive tried google and everywhere else, but i cant find anything on a trihybrid cross and if i do it only deals with two heterozygous plants.
here is the link to the assignment if it helps. im not asking for answers, just a little bit of info....

I'm doing the same type of thing, and having major problems. I'm only in the 7th grade, but these damn advanced classes suck. If I could, I would help you....but...uh...major problems of my own. :shock:

Which number are you doing?

There is a genotypic and phenotypic ratio for a trihybrid cross.


For example, a trihybrid cross would require a Punnett square with 64 spaces! (If you don't believe me, try it for yourself.) This gets to be confusing, and its easier to keep things straight using the forked line method, because it deals with phenotypes rather than genotypes.

my question concerned question number 1. i can do the chi square test as long as i know what the "expected outcome" of the trihybrid cross between a heterozygous plant and a homozygous recessive plant would. if i understand a trihybrid cross between two heterozygous plants, the expected outcome would be 9:3:3:1. but this is not true for a heterozygous and homozygous recessive cross. what would the "expected" outcome be?
