Question details

7. You are investigating the inheritance of petal shape in tulips. There are two types of flowers, those with entire (smooth) edges and those with feathered edges. You carry out the following three crosses: Cross Parent Phenotvpes: 2 Smooth x Feathered Progeny Phenotypes 40 Smooth, 7 Feathered 20 Smooth, 35 Feathered 1 Smooth x Smooth 3 Smooth x Feathered A. On the basis of these results, what is the most likely mode of inheritance of the smooth edge phenotype? B. Give the most likely genotypes of the parent in each cross. C. Use a chi-square test to evaluate the fit of the observed numbers of progeny to the number of expected on the basis of your proposed genotypes for cross number 1
