1) Hurricane clears the East Coast, causing massive destruction everywhere it hits. Small population of ducks in small town pond is wholly wiped out, while large population of seagulls living on stretch of beach only loses quarter of its group. Why are the two populations affected in a different way, and what type of genetic influence can this kind of event have?
2) Do you consider a dog a GMO (genetically modified organism)? Define the term GMO and why it fits or does not fit with characteristics of dog?
3) If we want to now create lot of this jellyfish Glo protein, what do we have to do after this first successful cloning to reach our goal?
4) Two genes of the flower, one controlling blue (B) against white (b) petals and other controlling round (R) against oval (r) stamens, are linked and are 10 map units apart. You cross the homozygous blue-oval plant with homozygous white-round plant. Resulting F1 progeny are crossed with homozygous white-oval plants, and 1000 progeny are attained. How many plants of each of four phenotypes do you suppose?
