SEE ATTACHED DOCUMENT FOR QUESTIONS 1. A woman with type Ablood(parents A+and O+) marries a man with type B+blood (parents ABandO+).a. List ALL of the possible blood types for their children.b. What is the probability that their first child is a girl that is blood type AB-?c. If they have two children, what is the chance they both have blood type O?d. What disease(s) is associated with pregnancy and Rh factor?2. For the biosynthesis of an essential metabolite required for growth in Neurospora several mutantswere discovered. In the space provided below order the metabolites in the pathway and show thelocation of the mutants in the pathway as well. In the table “+” means growth, while “-“ means nogrowth. Remember that the organism needs to be able to make the final product in the pathway togrow, and that it only starts with the first substrate in the pathway, all of the other substrates in thepathway are made by the action of the genes in the pathway.Minimal Medium Supplemented with:M N O P QWild Type + + + + +Mutant #1 + – – – -Mutant #2 + + – – +Mutant #3 + + + – +Mutant #4 + + – – -3. Below is a pathway showing the production of coat colour for a particular species of vole. The geneproduct of gene A is an enzyme that converts the white1 substrate into the product white2, while thegene product of gene B is an enzyme that converts the above white2 product into a brown product:a. When two dihybrids (AaBb) are crossed together, what will be the predicted ratio ofphenotypes in the offspring?b. When a dihybrid (AaBb) is testcrossed, what will be the predicted ratio of phenotypes in theoffspring?c. What type of epistasis is outlined in this question?4. The Manx allele is a recessive lethal, but when present in one copy results in a cat with the Manxphenotype (no tail).a. If two Manx cats are crossed together, what will be the proportion of normal cats (with tail) vsManx cats?b. A geneticist examined a number of litters from normal x normal cats and compared them tolitters of Manx x Manx cats. She observed 100 kittens in the normal x normal litters. How manykittens would you expect to find in the Manx x Manx litters?c. Two normal tailed cats from a Manx x Manx litter were crossed. What proportion of theoffspring would be Manx?5. Hemophilia is caused by a recessive gene located on the X-chromosome. A husband and wife bothhave normal blood clotting. However, both of their fathers had hemophilia.a. What is the probability that their first child has hemophilia?b. What is the probability that their first child is a girl without hemophilia?c. What is the probability that their first child is a carrier girl?6. In Drosophila, females of wild-type appearance but heterozygous for three autosomal genes aremated to males showing all three autosomal recessive traits: glassy eyes (Ge), coal-colored bodies (Cb)and striped thoraxes (St). One thousand progeny of this cross are distributed in the following phenotypicclasses:a. Which gene is in the middle?b. Draw a genetic map based on this data showing relative locations of thegenes with map distances between them.c. Calculate the interference value for this region.Phenotype Number+ Cb + 450Ge + St 414+ + + 45Ge Cb St 44+ Cb St 22Ge + + 19+ + St 4Ge Cb + 2Total = 10007. Below is a table showing the results of complementation analysis of 10 wing mutant strains (w1-w10)of fruit flies isolated in the lab. Each mutant strain is unable to produce wings. In the complementationanalysis, each strain is crossed to all of the other strains and the ability to produce wings in the offspringis assessed. If the offspring had wings the box is denoted with a “+” (eg. w1 crossed to w5 produceswinged progeny) while if the offspring that did not have wings it is denoted with a “-” (eg. w1 crossed tow2 produces wingless progeny).a. How many genes are involved in wingformation?b. When crossed, strains w1 and w2 produceswingless progeny. However, when these winglessprogeny are crossed to one another a small number of winge
