ASSIGNMENT #1-Inheritance and DNA PART 1: Inheritance Problems Complete the following inheritance problems. 1. The ability to roll one’s tongue like a taco is controlled for by a dominant allele (R). The inability to roll one’s tongue is controlled for by a recessive allele (r). Depending on the combination of alleles you inherit, you either roll your or you cannot: Based on the above information, answer the following questions: a. What is the homozygous dominant genotype? What phenotype will result? b. What is the homozygous recessive genotype? What phenotype will result? c. What is the heterozygous genotype? What phenotype will result? d. A homozygous dominant female and a homozygous recessive male get married and have children. What are the possible genotype(s) and corresponding phenotype(s) that can be inherited? What is the expected percentage and ratio? ANSWER 1: Place here. ——————————————————————————————————————–2. A zebra population has a mutant allele for spots. The spot trait (S) is dominant to the stripped allele (s). a) A spotted male mates with a stripped female. Assuming that he is homozygous, what is the probability that they will have striped offspring? b)If one of their daughters mates with a spotted (heterozygous) male, what is the probability that the offspring will be striped? ANSWER 2: Place here. ——————————————————————————————————————— 3. and Mrs. Smith (no, not Brad and Angelina) recently had a bouncing baby girl. However, Mr. Smith suspects that the baby might not be his. A blood test is performed with the following results: Mrs. Smith: Type A Mr. Smith: Type AB Baby: Type O Can Mr. Smith be the biological father of the child? Explain why or why not. ANSWER 3: Place here. ——————————————————————————————————————–4. You have just been in a terrible car accident, requiring massive blood transfusions. As you are lying on the operating table, you hear the ER doctor say, “Give the patient 3 units of Type AB blood, stat!” You know that you are Type O. Is there a problem here? Should you say something before you lose consciousness? Explain. ANSWER 4: Place here. ——————————————————————————————————————— 5. How could a set of parents with brown eyes produce a child with blue eyes? ANSWER 5: Place here. ——————————————————————————————————————— PART 2: DNA WORKSHEET 1. What are two important functions of DNA? Describe them. Answer: 2. What are the three components of a DNA nucleotide? Answer: 3. What are the bases of DNA? Which bases are paired together? What holds the bases together? Answer: 4. What are the bases of RNA? Which bases are paired together? Answer: 5. What would be the corresponding (or complimentary) base pairs be for the following strand of DNA (assuming no mutations): CACGTGGACTGAGGACTC Answer: 6. What would the corresponding segment of mRNAbe (assuming no mutations): AGGATACCCAGGTCCTGA Answer: 7. Describe the basic structure and main functions of mRNA. Answer: 8. How is RNA different from DNA? Answer: 9. What are the two steps in protein synthesis? What occurs during these two steps? Answer: 10. How many chromosomes do you have in each of your somatic cells? Why is all of your DNA in every one of your somatic cells? Answer:
