Im so annoyed.

Post by xllxashleexllx » Sat Sep 23, 2006 2:22 am

I have been working on this problem forever and still cant get it

Here is the question
If individual IV-1 had a daughter and a son, what whould the probability that the daughter is a carrier? That the son inherited the disorder.

I get stuck on probability no matter what I do.

Here is the figure.

Figure out what the phenotype of IV-1 is...(it's not simple dominance)...then do two punnet squares against heterozygous female and homozygous.

It seems that females are the carriers while males are the sufferers of the disease.

Is there no legend for the diagram?

His sons will all be selvatic, his daughters will all be carriers.
