  • Virtual Fly Lab
    • Take the QUIZ- Due at end of the period
    • For you to do:
      • Determine the zygosity of each fly in your cross
        • dominant or recessive, homozygous or heterozygous
      • Determine the effects of each allele by analyzing the offspring from your crosses.
        • Lethal alleles, linked genes (bonus for determining map distance), sex-linkage, etc.
      • Support or refute your hypothesis with a Chi-square analysis of the results
    • The Assignments
      • You will be assigned one of the following crosses below
        • Female apterous wing x Male sepia eyes
        • Female dumpy wing x Male shaven bristles
        • Female purple eyes/apterous wing x Male wild type
        • Female wild type x Male yellow body
        • Female curly wing x Male wild type
        • Female wild type x Male stubble bristles
        • Female wild type x Male scalloped wings
        • Female black body x Male purple eye
        • Female Lobe eyes x Male spineless bristles
        • Female vestigial wings x Male eyeless
        • Female wild type x male white eye
      • Come up with a null hypothesis for your cross. 
      • Your hypothesis should be based on Mendelian ratios.
    • You will write a formal lab report (in partners) using the template provided on the virtual fly lab
      • grading will be based on the virtual fly lab rubric- Due Monday 02/01
  • Short Exam/ Long Quiz next Monday (02/01) Wednesday 02/03
