The theoretical or expected ratio of plants producing round or wrinkled seeds is 3 round :1 wrinkled Mendels observed ratio was 2.96:1 The discrepancy is due to statistical error The larger the sample the more nearly the results approximate to the theoretical ratio </li> <li> Slide 21 </li> <li> Looking closer at Mendels work true-breeding purple-flower peas true-breeding white-flower peas X 100% purple-flower peas F 1 generation (hybrids) 25% white-flower peas F 2 generation 75% purple-flower peas 3:1 P self-pollinate </li> <li> Slide 22 </li> <li> Test cross Cross-breed the dominant phenotype unknown genotype with a homozygous recessive (pp) to determine the identity of the unknown allele x pp is it PP or Pp? </li> <li> Slide 23 </li> <li> x PPpp Test cross pp P P PpPp PpPpPpPp PpPp pp P p PpPp pp PpPp x PpPp 100% 50%:50% 1:1 </li> <li> Slide 24 </li> <li> 23 Mendels Laws </li> <li> Slide 25 </li> <li> Mendels laws of heredity (#1) Law of segregation when gametes are produced during meiosis, homologous chromosomes separate from each other each allele for a trait is packaged into a separate gamete PP P P pp p p PpPp P p </li> <li> Slide 26 </li> <li> Law of Segregation What meiotic event creates the law of segregation? Meiosis 1 </li> <li> Slide 27 </li> <li> Monohybrid cross Some of Mendels experiments followed the inheritance of single characters flower color seed color monohyb rid crosses Other of Mendels experiments followed the inheritance of 2 different characters seed color and seed shape dihybrid crosses </li> <li> Slide 28 </li> <li> Dihybrid cross true-breeding yellow, round peas true-breeding green, wrinkled peas x YYRRyyrr P YyRr 100% F 1 generation (hybrids) yellow, round peas self-pollinate F 2 generation 9/16 yellow round peas 9:3:3:1 3/16 green round peas 3/16 yellow wrinkled peas 1/16 green wrinkled peas Y = yellow R = round y = green r = wrinkled </li> <li> Slide 29 </li> <li> Dihybrid cross YyRr YRYryR yr YR Yr yR yr YYRRYYRrYyRRYyRr YYRrYYrrYyRrYyrr YyRRYyRryyRRyyRr YyRrYyrryyRryyrr x 9/16 yellow round 3/16 green round 3/16 yellow wrinkled 1/16 green wrinkled </li> <li> Slide 30 </li> <li> Mendels laws of heredity (#2) Law of independent assortment each pair of alleles segregates into gametes independently 4 classes of gametes are produced in equal amounts YR, Yr, yR, yr only true for genes on separate chromosomes YyRr Yr yR YR yr </li> <li> Slide 31 </li> <li> Law of Independent Assortment What meiotic event creates the law of independent assortment?
