Description

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?
