Chi-Squared Test Statistic = 3.9340 Degrees of Freedom = 3 Level of Significance = 0.2687 Recommendation: Do not reject your hypothesis This is the analysis of hypothesis of phenotype ratios from the F2 generation. -------------------------------------------------------------------------The correct phenotypic ratio for this experiment is 1:1 (wild type eyes to sepia eyes) in the F1 generation and 3:1 (wild type eyes to sepia eyes) in the F2 generation. This was what I expected because I assumed that incomplete dominance and codiminance were not factors that affected the trait for the flies' eye color. This meant that the flies that express the recessive trait must be homozygous recessive. I also assumed that the flies that express the dominant trait are true-bred and homozygous for the dominant alleles for eye type. The cross between the two true-bred fly types should, based on basic principles of dominance, produce only the dominant trait and heterozygous individuals. The parent cross, in this case, can be looked at as a test cross. Because my hypothesis for the F1 generation was analyzed and I was recommended to not reject it, I knew that I was most likely correct in assuming that all of the offspring were heterozygous. A cross between heterozygous individuals that express the dominant trait would produce offspring in a 3:1 ratio (dominant trait to trait recessive). Because the F1 generation's population was completely heterozygous and only expressed one trait, I concluded that that trait is expressed by the dominant allele. In this case, the wild type eyes are expressed by the dominant trait. Further evidence is gathered from the F2 generation. My assumption that the F1 generation was completely heterozygous was proven as the F2 generation expressed traits in a 3:1 ratio (dominant to recessive). There is a 25% chance, in a monohybrid cross between heterozygous individuals, that an offspring with the recessive trait will be born. As about 75% of the population of flies expressed the dominant trait (wild type eyes) and 25% of the population expressed the recessive trait (sepia eyes), I arrived at the conclusion that the dominant allele codes for wild type eyes. I also conclude that the alleles for eye type in this species of flies do not function on the basis of codominance or incomplete dominance because the heterozygous flies of the F1 generation did not display both traits/a mix of both traits.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------By restricting the number of offspring in a cross, the results become more unpredictable. The wild type bristles should be dominant over singed bristles on a 3 to 1 basis, assuming the parents are homozygous. The F2 generation should exhibit the dominant trait to recessive trait on a 3:1 ratio. However, because I restricted the F2 generation to approximately 100 offspring, the ratio became more unpredictable. This is because of the Law of Independent Assortment and the Law of Segregation. These laws account for the randomness of genetic crosses. Based on probability, the ratio of dominant to recessive traits should be 3:1, but because the outcome of genetic crosses is random in many cases, there will be a degree of unpredictability in the outcome of the crosses. This is more apparent when there are less offspring than more offspring because a large number of crosses, due to principles of probability, will cause the results to even out towards the expected outcome. c.

Chi-Squared Test Statistic = 3.0570 Degrees of Freedom = 3 Level of Significance = 0.3829 Recommendation: Do not reject your hypothesis -------------------------------------------------------------------------The F1 generation population consists of 104 flies. This generation is the outcome of the cross between homozygous individuals for variations of the same trait. I hypothesized that the offspring will express the dominant trait (wild type eye shape) on a ratio of 1:0. Even with such a limited number of offspring, the data is completely predictable because the cross between homozygous parents must produce heterozygous offspring at a 100% rate. In these different experiments (a, b, and c), the result of the different crosses is more predictable when the offspring population is larger because with more offspring, there is more opportunity for the result to even out towards what is probable. 3.

9:3:3:1 ratio The outcomes for my F1 and F2 crosses can be explained by the dihybrid punnett squares. The F1 punnett square shows that, by crossing two homozygous individuals, only one genotype and phenotype can be achieved within offspring (WwNn). When the offspring reproduce, however, They will provide an F2 generation with roughly the ratio of 9:3:3:1 [wild (color), normal (wild wings): ebony, normal: wild, vestigial: ebony, vestigial]. The actual ratio for the F2 generation was approximately 8.1:2.7:2.9:1. There is a small difference from the predicted and the actual outcome. This is due to the randomness of genetic crosses that occurs because, after the alleles segregate and assort independently during gamete formation, the flies sperm and egg randomly combine. It only likely, not certain, that the final result of the cross will produce offspring with phenotypes based on a 9:3:3:1 ratio. The actual ratio will even out due to principles of probability if more offspring are made from the F1 parents. 4.

The F1 wild-type female is double-heterozygous. The female cannot be double homozygous, otherwise all of the offspring would have exhibited the dominant trait. A cross between double heterozygous females and double homozygous recessive males will produce a phenotype ratio of 1:1:1:1.

This punnett square illustrates the outcome of the cross that I described. The actual outcome of the parent cross of the F1 generation created offspring on a 1:1:1:1 ratio (Wild eyes, Wild body: Brown eyes, wild body, Wild eyes: ebony body: Brown eyes, Ebony body). That is the predicted outcome of a test cross between a double homozygous recessive individual and double heterozygous individual (shown in the punnett square). The data proves that the female was almost certainly double-heterozygous.
