1 Simple Genetics Practice Problems 1. For each genotype, indicate whether it is heterozygous (HE) or homozygous (HO) AA Bb Cc Dd Ee ff GG HH Ii Jj kk Ll Mm nn OO Pp 2. For each of the genotypes below, determine the phenotype. Purple flowers are dominant to white flowers PP Pp pp Round seeds are dominant to wrinkled RR Rr rr Brown eyes are dominant to blue eyes BB Bb bb Bobtails are recessive (long tails dominant) TT Tt tt 3. For each phenotype, list the genotypes. (Remember to use the letter of the dominant trait) Straight hair is dominant to curly. straight straight curly Pointed heads are dominant to round heads. pointed pointed round 4. Set up the square for each of the crosses listed below. The trait being studied is round seeds (dominant) and wrinkled seeds (recessive) Rr x rr What percentage of the offspring will be round?

2 Rr x Rr What percentage of the offspring will be round? RR x Rr What percentage of the offspring will be round? Practice with Crosses. Show all work! 5. A TT (tall) plant is crossed with a tt (short plant). What percentage of the offspring will be tall? 6. A Tt plant is crossed with a Tt plant. What percentage of the offspring will be short? 7. A heterozygous round seeded plant (Rr) is crossed with a homozygous round seeded plant (RR). What percentage of the offspring will be homozygous (RR)? 8. A homozygous round seeded plant is crossed with a homozygous wrinkled seeded plant. What are the genotypes of the parents? x What percentage of the offspring will also be homozygous?

3 9. In pea plants purple flowers are dominant to white flowers. If two white flowered plants are cross, what percentage of their offspring will be white flowered? 10. A white flowered plant is crossed with a plant that is heterozygous for the trait. What percentage of the offspring will have purple flowers? 11. Two plants, both heterozygous for the gene that controls flower color are crossed. What percentage of their offspring will have purple flowers? What percentage will have white flowers? 12.

5 21. In humans, polydactyly (an extra finger on each hand or toe on each foot) is due to a dominant gene. When one parent is polydactylous, but heterozygous, and the other parent is normal, what are the genotypic and phenotypic ratios of their children? Two trait crosses For the following two trait crosses we will use some of the traits Mendel studied in pea plants. Use the chart below to determine if the allele is dominant or recessive. The chart also assigns letters to use for the following genetic problems. Trait Dominant Allele Recessive Allele Pod Shape Smooth (N) Constricted (n) Pod Color Green (G) Yellow (g) Flower Position Axial (A) Terminal (t) Plant Height Tall (T) Short (t) Flower Color White (W) Violet (w) 1. For the following genotypes below, determine the phenotype. NnWw ggaa ttnn wwtt WwTt aagg Aagg nnww 2. For each of the phenotypes, list all the possible genotypes. Remember to use the letters for each trait from the table above. Plant Height and pod shape Flower color and flower position tall, smooth white, axial tall, smooth white, axial short, constricted violet, terminal Pod color and pod shape Plant height and flower position Green, smooth tall, axial Green, smooth tall, axial yellow, constricted short, terminal

What genotypic ratios are produced by matings between cream colored guinea pigs? Describe the phenotypic ratio. 18. In humans hair texture is controlled by incomplete dominance. A curly haired individual and a straight haired individual have all wavy haired children. If two wavy haired people have children, what will the phenotypic ratio be?

9 19. In Japanese four o clock flowers, color is inherited by genes that show incomplete dominance. In such flowers, a cross between a homozygous red flower and a homozygous white flower will always result in pink flowers. a. A cross is made between two pink flowers.

Also, having 2 eyebrows is dominant over one eyebrow. If two individuals are heterozygous for both traits, what is the probability of each phenotype in their future offspring? 21. Remember that hair texture is incompletely dominant. Widow s peak is dominant to not having a window s peak. If a couple has wavy hair and both do not have a widow s peak, what is the phenotypic probability of their children? Co-dominance Problems 22.

10 Multiple Allele Problems 1. Suppose a man with homozygous A blood marries a woman with AB blood. What blood types would you expect to find among their children? 2. A man of type AB blood is married to a woman of type O and he questions the legitimacy of her child, who has type O blood. What should the legal judgment be? 3. A child has blood type AB, and the mother has blood type A. a. What are the possible genotypes of the child s father? b. Could the father be type O? Explain. 4. Mrs. Doe and Mrs. Jones had babies at the same hospital at the same time. Mrs. Doe took home a girl and named her Nancy. Mrs. Jones received a boy and named him Richard. However, Mrs. Jones was sure she had had a girl and brought a law suit against the hospital. Blood tests showed the Mr. Jones was type O. Mrs. Jones was type AB. Mr. and Mrs. Does were both type A. Nancy was type B and Richard was type O. Had an exchange occurred? Explain! 5. Mike and Carol Brady are expecting their first child together. Mike, however, has noticed that Sam the Butcher has been hanging around the house at weird times and often when Alice is not around. When baby Brady is born, Mike notices that its blood type is B+. Mike is concerned because he has AB- blood and Carol has O+ (heterozygous positive). Sam the butcher has A+ (heterozygous positive) blood. Is Mike just being sill and as normal will they have this situation settled in 30 minutes, or will the show be continued for paternity suits?
