So the cross is T_W_ X T_ww Since their first child is ttww, you know that actual genotype of the two parents are: TtWw X Ttww. Now, to get another ttww, the probability is 1/4...

3. ### Single Nucleotide polymorphisms?

1. Expressivity and penetrance. The gene although present is not being expressed. 2. Some other portion of the taste transduction pathway is broken. Say, for example, a mutation in a "gustducin" gene. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki...

6. ### Man's genotype and womens genotype?

Tasting is dominant, so both partners have at least one T allele. As both have one non-tasting parent, genotype tt, then both inherited a t allele from the other parent. Both have genotype Tt. Tt x Tt. Both produce T and...

1. Having no freckles is recessive, so two copies of the allele are required, therefore both parents are ff, and each can only produce a single gamete f, so all the children will be ff and like their parents have no...
