Presentation Transcript

• Dealing with events with mutually exclusive outcomes

• Tossing a coin: 2 outcomes - heads or tails

• Probability of getting tails: one way to get tails out of 2 possible outcomes

• P = 1/2

p Pp pp

Probability

• Applies to Mendelian situations also

• Crossing two heterozygous purple pea plants:

• 2 possible outcomes: purple or white

• probability of purple = 3/4

• probability of white = 1/4

P p

• Two basic rules

• Sum rule

• applies when looking for eitherof two or more outcomes of one event

• Product rule

• applies when looking at more than one event

Sumrule

• Probability of rolling a 1 or 2 with a die

• 1/6 chance of rolling a 1

• 1/6 chance of rolling a 2

• 1/6 + 1/6 = 1/3 chance of either

• Looking for specific outcomes of more than one event

• Clue word: “and”

• Probability of tossing a coin twice and getting heads both times

• 1/2 chance of heads on first toss

• 1/2 chance of heads on second toss

• (1/2)(1/2) = 1/4 chance of two heads

• Disease caused by recessive allele

• locus on chromosome 12 

• P produces enzyme: phenylalanine hydroxylase

• p defective; no enzyme

• No enzyme; no metabolism of phenylalanine

• build-up of neurotoxins

• severe mental retardation

• PP = normal

• Pp = normal, but carrier

• pp = no enzyme: PKU

• 1/8000 U.S. (white); 1/50,000 U.S. (black); 1/18,000 S. Eur.; 1/4000 Ireland/Scotland

• Blood test developed in 1950’s

• 1st test for a genetic disease

• Symptoms totally preventable w/ diet!

• A couple who are both heterozygous for PKU are expecting their first child. What is the probability the child will be a boy with PKU?

• Pp X Pp ----> 3/4 normal: 1/4 PKU

• 1/2 chance boy; 1/2 chance girl

• (1/4)(1/2) = 1/8

• A couple who are both heterozygous for PKU are expecting their first child. What is the probability the child will be a boy without PKU?

• Sum rule: situations where you are given more options. P should be increasing.

• Product rule: situations where you have more restrictions. P should be decreasing

• MULTIPLY FRACTIONS

• Two rules together:

• P of a couple having two children; one boy and one girl

• two possible ways:

• first child boy; second child girl

• first child girl; second child boy

• P of boy then girl: 1/2 x 1/2 = 1/4

• P of girl then boy: 1/2 x 1/2 = 1/4

• Only one of these two cases can occur, so we add the probabilities!

• 1/4 + 1/4 = 1/2

• A couple who are both heterozygous for PKU plan on having 2 children. What is the probability only one will have PKU?

• Two ways:

• 1st child PKU; 2nd no PKU

• 1st child no PKU; 2nd PKU

• (1/4)(3/4) + (3/4)(1/4) = 6/16 = 3/8

• Any easy way to combine the sum and product rules

• Use when you have unordered outcomes of more than one event

n!

P = -------- ps qt

s! t!

n = number of events

s = outcome 1 t = outcome 2

p = prob of outcome 1

q = prob of outcome 2

n!

P = ---------- ps qt ru

s! t! u!

n = number of events

s = outcome 1; t = o. 2; u = o. 3

p = prob of outcome 1

q = prob of outcome 2

r = prob of outcome 3

A couple who are both heterozygous for PKU plan

on having 5 children. What is the probability only

one will have PKU?

5!

P = ------- (3/4)4 (1/4)1

P = 0.40

A woman with attached earlobes marries a man

with free earlobes whose mother had attached

earlobes. They plan on having 3 children. What

is the probability they will have two boys with free

earlobes and one girl with attached earlobes?

• 1/2 chance of having attached earlobes

• 1/2 chance of having free earlobes

• 1/2 chance of having a boy

• 1/2 chance of having a girl

earlobes whose mother had attached earlobes. They plan

on having 4 children. What is the probability they will have

two boys with free earlobes, one girl with free earlobes and

one girl with attached earlobes?

One has dimples (Dd) and the other does not (dd). They plan to have five children. What is the probability that only 3 will have dimples but no cleft chin?

• Tests for goodness of fit

• i.e. do your results match what you would expect based on your hypothesis of mode of inheritance?

• If you expected a 3:1 ratio, is that what you have?

P: red x yellow

F1: red

F1 x F1

F2: 3665 red: 1139 yellow

Is this a 3:1 ratio? Is this a simple case of

one gene with two alleles; red

dominant and yellow recessive?

3665:1139 = 3:1?

1. Convert expected ratios to expected NUMBERS

Multiply TOTAL by expected fractions:

total tomatoes observed: 4804

3/4 x 4804 = 3603

1/4 x 4804 = 1201

red yellow

Observed numbers: 3665 1139

Expected numbers: 3603 1201

Are the observed numbers close

enough to the expecteds?

(observed - expected)2

c2 = S -----------------------------------

expected

red yellow

obs: 3665 1139

exp: 3603 1201

(3665 - 3603)2 (1139 - 1201)2

c2 = ------------------- + -------------------

3603 1201

c2 = 4.27

The c2 value is a measure of the deviation

between your observed numbers and the

expected numbers.

The larger the c2 value, the greater

the deviation. The larger the

deviation, the less chance your

results match the expecteds!

How much deviation is too much?

You must consult a c2 table.

First we need to know one more thing:

the degrees of freedom

Degrees of freedom

Number of other options possible once an

organism is classified as one phenotype.

d.f. = number of phenotypic classes - 1

Degrees of freedom:

phenotypic classes: red yellow

d.f. = 1

If you have 8 phenotypic classes, there

are 7 degrees of freedom, etc...

Our c2 = 4.27

d.f. = 1

Probability

_______________________________________

d.f. .95 .50 .20 .05 .01

4 0.71 3.36 5.99 9.49 13.28

5 1.15 4.35 7.29 11.07 15.09

Our deviation has a less than 5% chance

of occurring due to random causes.

There is a statistically significant difference between our observed and expected numbers.

We must reject this as a good 3:1 ratio.
