APA Format 50 words each question.
1)-What would you expect a pedigree to look like for each pattern? Give an example for each.
There are four types of inheritance patterns in pedigrees.
The four types of inheritance patterns are:
Autosomal dominant: for the individuals who have two copies of the mutant allele.
Autosomal recessive: for the individuals who have two copies of the mutant allele.
X linked recessive: normal copy of the gene not required.
X linked dominant: presence of only one copy of mutant allele is required.
2)-You know GENE+ENVIRONMENT(life style)=EFFECTS ON PHENOTYPE
So, for example, even if I have a gene for cancer, the chance of getting cancer is 50:50.
What are your thoughts?
