Design an Experiment The unicellular alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii has two flagella assembled from tubulin proteins. If a researcher changes the pH from approximately neutral (their normal growing condition) to pH….
If this couple has a second child, what is the probability that it will have normal hands and woolly hair?
Having malformed hands with shortened fingers is a dominant trait controlled by a single gene; people who are homozygous for the recessive allele have normal hands and fingers. Having woolly hair is a dominant trait controlled by a different gene; homozygous recessive individuals have normal, nonwoolly hair. Suppose a woman with normal hands and nonwoolly hair marries a man who has malformed hands and woolly hair. Their first child has normal hands and nonwoolly hair. What are the genotypes of the mother, the father, and the child? If this couple has a second child, what is the probability that it will have normal hands and woolly hair?
