Symbols to know for crosses

Symbols to Know for Crosses

  • a/a – a is the allele and / represents the two chromatids – there are two alleles for a diploid organism

  • a b/a b – two different genes on the same chromosome

  • a/a ; b/b – two different genes on different chromosomes ; designated separate chromosomes

  • X – symbolizes mating between two different individuals

  • X - symbolizes a self cross – when the hermaphrodite worms fertilize their own eggs

  • + is the wild type or non-mutant form of a gene


Mapping 1 making the double mutant

hermaphrodite

self cross

gametes

Progeny genotype

Progeny phenotypes

and ratios

What if the genotype of the parent was + unc/+ unc?


Mapping 2 making heterozygotes for mapping
