More Crosses with Pea Plants: The Principle of Independent Assortment

Consider the following cross:

P1: AABBCCDDEE × aabbccddee

F1: AaBbCcDdEe (self-cross to get F2)

What is the chance of getting an AaBBccDdee individual in the F2 generation?

Summary Introduction

To predict: The probability of getting AaBBccDdee individual in the F2 generation.

Introduction: The punnet square is used to depict the genetic cross between two parents and all the possibilities of the resulting progenies that can help in identifying the genotype and phenotype of the hybrids.

Explanation of Solution

The number of possibilities in the formation of hybrids from the genetic cross is calculated by using the formula 2n, where n is the number of gametes formed from the parents. The Penta-hybrid cross involves the formation of 25. Hence, the total numbers of hybrids formed are mentioned as follows:

    Totalnumberofhybridsfromonegameteinapenta-hybridcrossare:=25=32Thegametesarerecievedfromboththetheparents.Therefore,thetotalhybridsformedare:=32×32=1,024

The probability of the hybrid “AaBBccDdee” can be calculated by identifying the number of gametes formed from a heterozygous trait
