Notes: Multiple Alleles. Single Allele = R or r Possible genotypes: RR, Rr , rr. Multiple Alleles: A, B, O Possible Genotypes: AA, BB, OO, AO, BO, AB Notice how each organism still only has two alleles (one from Mom, Dad). Multiple alleles = Traits controlled by more than two alleles.

Notes multiple alleles

Notes: Multiple Alleles


Notes multiple alleles

  • Single Allele = R or r

  • Possible genotypes: RR, Rr, rr


Notes multiple alleles

  • Multiple Alleles: A, B, O

  • Possible Genotypes: AA, BB, OO, AO, BO, AB

  • Notice how each organism still only has two alleles (one from Mom, Dad)


Notes multiple alleles

Multiple alleles = Traits controlled by more than two alleles


Notes multiple alleles

  • Eye color alleles: Brown, Green, Blue

  • Dominance = Brown > green > blue

  • Genotype determines amount of melanin in iris

  • (more melanin = brown)

  • For more in depth eye genetics:

  • eye alleles


Multiple alleles rabbit coat

Multiple Alleles: Rabbit Coat

  • C = agouti (dark gray)


Example rabbits

Example: Rabbits

  • C = dark gray

  • cch = chinchilla (light gray)


Example rabbits1

Example: Rabbits

  • C = dark gray

  • cch = chinchilla (light gray)

  • ch = himalayan (white with black points)


Example rabbits2

Example: Rabbits

  • C = dark gray

  • cch = chinchilla (light gray)

  • ch = himalayan (white with black points)

  • c = white


Example rabbits3

Example: Rabbits

  • C = dark gray

  • cch = chinchilla (light gray)

  • ch = himalayan (white with black points)

  • c = white

  • Dominance: C> cch > ch > c


Genotypes

Genotypes

  • White: cc (homozygous recessive)


Genotypes1

Genotypes

  • White: cc

  • Himalayan: chch or chc


Genotypes2

Genotypes

  • White: cc

  • Himalayan: chch or chc

  • Chinchilla: cchcchor cchch or cchc


Genotypes3

Genotypes

  • White: cc

  • Himalayan: chch or chc

  • Chinchilla: cchcchor cchchor cchc

  • Gray: CC or C cchor C chor Cc


Practice problem

Practice problem

  • Draw the Punnett square and give the phenotype ratios for the following cross:

    C cchxchch


Try another

Try Another:

  • Draw a Punnett Square and give the phenotype ratios for the offspring of these parents:

  • Cc xCCh
