• Question 1 3 out of 3 points In the first part of this lab, we study data from a (hypothetical) species called Glyptodan neomexicanus. Each individual has either a red shell or a yellow shell. A count of individuals in a particular area indicates that there are 122 red individuals and 38 yellow individuals. If we assume that shell color is inherited in a Mendelian fashion, which shell color appears to be dominant? • Question 2 0 out of 3 points All we can observe directly is the phenotype of an individual, without biochemical or genomic analysis. Therefore, we cannot ascertain the genotype of individuals by inspection of their shells. However, if shell color is inherited in a Mendelian fashion and if we study family units, we can infer the genotype from the phenotypes of the parents and the offspring. In this analysis we are assuming that red is dominant and yellow is recessive. The A allele goes with the red trait, the a allele goes with the yellow trait. If both parents are yellow, and all offspring are yellow, then • Question 3 3 out of 3 points All we can observe directly is the phenotype of an individual, without biochemical or genomic analysis. Therefore, we cannot ascertain the genotype of individuals by inspection of their shells. However, if shell color is inherited in a Mendelian fashion and if we study family units, we can infer the genotype from the phenotypes of the parents and the offspring. In this analysis we are assuming that red is dominant and yellow is recessive. The A allele goes with the red trait, the a allele goes with the yellow trait. If one parent is red and the other is yellow and half the offspring are red, while half the offspring are yellow, then • Question 4 3 out of 3 points Refer to the picture of the thin-layer chromatography results to answer this question.
