Student Expectation (SE) 6F - predictpossible outcomes of various genetic combinations such as monohybrid crosses, dihybrid crosses and non-Mendelian inheritance

Dihybrid Crosses

Monohybrid Cross Review

Two heterozygous red-flowering plants are crossed. If red is dominant over white, what is the most likely phenotype in the offspring?

- A dihybrid cross is a prediction of an offsprings genotype for two traits such as:
- Yellow seeds and wrinkled seeds
- Blond hair and blue eyes
- Purple lipped and one legged

2. Show how the gametes form from a cross between Round,yellow seeds (RRYY) and Wrinkled, green seeds (rryy)

Muppets can either have Ruffled feathers (R) or smooth feathers (r). They can also have Yellow eyes (Y) or green eyes (y)

Big Bird and Mrs. Bird are heterozygous for ruffled feathers and yellow eyes. What are the chances their offspring will have smooth feathers and Yellow eyes?

Step 1) figure out what this means:

Big Bird and Mrs. Bird are heterozygous for ruffled feathers and yellow eyes

Heterozygous: different

That means Mr. and Mrs. Bird are both:
