The gene controlling ABO blood type and the gene underlying nail-patella syndrome are said to show linkage. What does that mean in terms of their relative locations in the genome? What does it mean in terms of how the two traits are inherited with respect to each other?

Summary Introduction

To determine: Genetic linkage with respect to a gene controlling ABO blood type and gene underlying nail-patella syndrome in the genome.

Introduction:

The linkage is the term which is used to define a condition in which two or more genes tend to inherit together and do not show independent assortment. The distance between two linked genes can be determined by measuring the degree of recombination between them.

Explanation of Solution

The gene controlling ABO blood type and the gene underlying nail-patella syndrome are identified as linked genes. The genes that show linkage are positioned close together on the same chromosome. These genes will have a tendency to be inherited together, and their associated disorders will also be inherited together...

Summary Introduction

To determine: The way in which two traits (gene controlling ABO blood type and the gene underlying nail-patella syndrome) are inherited with respect to each other.

Introduction:

The linkage is a phenomenon in which two or more genes occur on the same chromosome and do not show independent assortment. Load method is one of the techniques which is used to determine whether the two genes are linked or not.
