Read the questions carefully and make sure you completely answer the question.

Use the space provided to show your work. 2 Points Each 1. Mom is heterozygous for albinism (autosomal recessive inheritance pattern) and dad's genotype is homozygous dominant. If normal melanin proteins are dominant over no melanin production then what are the genotypic and phenotypic ratios of the offspring?

2. Son has Cystic Fibrosis (autosomal recessive inheritance pattern). Neither Mom nor Dad has CF. What is the genotype of the parents?

3.Both parents are heterozygous for Achondroplasia (autosomal dominance inheritance pattern). If dwarfism is dominant over normal growth then what are the genotypic and phenotypic ratios of the offspring?

4.Dad has Duchenne muscular dystrophy (X-linked recessive) and his daughter does also. Mom does not. What must Mom's genotype be? What are the chances that their son will have Duchenne?

5.A phenotypically normal female mates with a normal male. Their biological son has hemophilia (x-linked recessive). What are the parental genotypes? What percentage of their offspring will be affected by the disorder? What percentage of boys? What percentage of girls?

6.A man is Albino, balding with blood type 0. His wife has blond hair, normal blood pressure with blood type A. Her brother is color blind (x-linked recessive). What is the percent chance that they will have a female offspring? What is the percent chance that they will have a male offspring, if they have already had two sons?

7.Father has type B and Mom has type A. Blood types A and B are co-dominant to recessive O allele.Can their son, with type O, be their biological offspring?

8.One form of Alzheimer's Disease is inherited autosomal dominant. Dad has the disease (and is homozygous) but mom does not. What are the genotypic and phenotypic ratios of the offspring?

4 Points

9.In humans, dark hair (D) is dominant over blondness (d), and color blindness (c) is a sex-linked recessive trait. Study the following pedigree, and then fill in the table below. Fill out the table by using the above pedigree. For #9, list all possibilities.
