## How many possible gametes can be formed following meiosis excluding crossing over events from an original cell that contains a diploid number of 16?

, where n = number of different chromosomes. b. Using that formula, how many chromosomal combinations can result from meiosis when the diploid number is 16? = 256 different combinations.

## What is the number of possible gametes that can be formed?

32. Since humans have 46 chromosomes or 23 homologous pairs, what is the number of possible gametes that can be formed due to independent assortment of chromosomes? The number of possible combinations of maternal and paternal chromosomes in the resulting gametes is 223, or about 8.4 million.

## How many kinds of gametes can be produced by an organism with a diploid number of 8?

11. How many possible gamete combinations are there for an organism that has a diploid number of 8? 24 = 2 X 2 X 2 x 2 = 16 different combinations.

## How many combinations are possible when chromosomes assort independently into gametes ignoring crossing over )?

They align and assort independently to form any of 16 different combinations.

## How many genetically gametes can be produced by independent assortment from a 2n 6 cell?

How many genetically unique gametes can be produced by independent assortment from a 2n=6 cell? Based on the different arrangements of homologous pairs during meiosis I, 8 unique gametes can be produced.

## How many possible genetic combinations can arise from meiosis?

Since the separation of chromosomes into gametes is random during meiosis I, this process results in different combinations of chromosomes (and alleles) in each gamete. With 23 pairs of chromosomes, there is a possibility of over 8 million different combinations of chromosomes (2^{23}) in a human gamete.

## How many gametes can a homozygous produce?

Here, the given genotype consists of two heterogeneous alleles Bb, and Cc while one homozygous allele is AA. So, it results in the production of 22= 4 types of gametes.

## How many possible types of gametes can a human female make because of the independent assortment of chromosomes in meiosis?

When these chromosome pairs are reshuffled through independent assortment, they can produce eight possible combinations in the resulting gametes: A B C.

## How many different gamete types could be produced through independent assortment by an individual with the genotype AaBbccDDEeFFGG?

a) An individual with the genotype AaBbccDDEeFFGG produces 8 different gametes.

## How many possible gametes can be formed following meiosis excluding crossing over events from an original cell that contains a diploid number of six 2n 6 )?

from an original cell that contains a diploid number of 46 (2n=46)? 3. How many possible gamete types can be generated through the process of crossing over alone? 4.

## How many different combinations are possible in the gametes of an organism whose haploid number is 3?

With three pairs of chromosomes, there are 2^{3} = 8 combinations.

## How many possible combinations of maternal and paternal chromosomes are possible in the gametes of an organism with 6 chromosomes?

How many possible combinations of maternal and paternal chromosomes are possible in the gametes of an organism with 6 chromosomes? 64 – There are two options for each chromosome, maternal and paternal, and the two options can occur six times: 26 options for 64 total possibilities.

## How many different gamete cells can be produced from a diploid cell with diploid number 2n 4?

-So Organisms with 2n=4 chromosomes can produce 4 (2^2=4) different combinations of chromosomes in their gametes (with independent assortment, alone). Organisms with 2n=6 can produce 8 (2^3=8) different gamete types.

## How many varieties are possible due to independent assortment in an organism 2n 8?

Correct. Because each pair of homologous chromosomes is positioned independently in metaphase I, the first meiotic division results in the independent assortment of paternal and maternal chromosomes into daughter cells. In a case in which 2n = 8, 16 combinations of chromosomes are possible for gametes.

## What is the probability of obtaining a gamete in which all the chromosomes are paternal ones?

If 2n = 6, what is the probability of obtaining a gamete in which all the chromosomes are paternal ones? The chance of any one paternal chromosome ending up in a particular gamete is 1/2, so the chance that all three would be of paternal origin would be (1/2)n, where n = 3.
