1. Your individual is male/female (choose one). Females are XX and males are XY. For simplicity, assume that the individual is diploid with 2n _ 6, including the sex chromosomes. On one pair of autosomes (the nonsex chromosomes), the individual is heterozygous for hair color (B _ brown and dominant, b _ blonde and recessive). On another pair of autosomes, the organism is heterozygous for hair structure (C _
curly and dominant, c _ straight and recessive). Assume further that the individual's mother was homozygous dominant for both traits and the father was homozygous recessive for both.
a. Is your individual's hair curly or straight? Brown or blonde?
b. What did the individual's mother's hair look like? What did the father's hair look like?
c. What chromosomes and alleles were in the egg and the sperm that gave rise to your individual?
