## What is the expected genotypic ratio resulting from a homozygous dominant and a heterozygous Monohybrid cross?

A monohybrid cross results in a phenotypic ratio of 3:1 (dominant to recessive), and a genotypic ratio of 1:2:1 (homozygous dominant to heterozygous to homozygous recessive).

## What are the possible offspring is a homozygous dominant parent is crossed with a heterozygous parent?

Because homozygous dominant and heterozygous individuals are phenotypically identical, the observed traits in the F_{2} offspring will exhibit a ratio of three dominant to one recessive.

## What is the chance two homozygous dominant parents will produce a homozygous offspring?

The offspring of two homozygous dominant parents has a 75% chance of exhibiting the dominant trait.

## What is the expected genotypic ratio resulting from a heterozygous heterozygous cross?

Tutorial. The expected genotype ratio when two heterozygotes are crossed is 1 (homozygous dominant) : 2 (heterozygous) : 1 (homozygous recessive).

## What percentage of the offspring resulting from a heterozygous heterozygous Dihybrid cross are heterozygous for both traits?

Offspring heterozygous for both traits

There are 4 out of 16 possible combinations of gametes from an SsYy x SsYy cross with the genotype of SsYy. We would therefore predict that 4/16 (or 1/4) of the offspring of the cross would be heterozygous for both traits.

## What is a heterozygous and homozygous?

Heterozygous refers to having inherited different forms of a particular gene from each parent. A heterozygous genotype stands in contrast to a homozygous genotype, where an individual inherits identical forms of a particular gene from each parent.

## How do you find the percentage of a Punnett square?

Count the total number of boxes in your Punnett Square. This gives you the total number of predicted offspring. Divide the (number of occurrences of the phenotype) by (the total number of offspring). Multiply the number from step 4 by 100 to get your percent.

## What is the probability that an offspring will have a homozygous recessive genotype?

If two heterozygotes are crossed, the probability that an offspring will be homozygous recessive is 25% or 0.25.

## When a homozygous recessive organism is crossed with a heterozygous dominant organism what percent of the progeny will be heterozygous dominant?

The answer is 50%.

Assume that the homozygous recessive trait is denoted by aa and the heterozygote is Aa. If you cross aa with Aa in a Punnett…

## What is the chance a homozygous recessive parent passes on a dominant allele?

If both parents carry only one copy of a recessive gene, the likelihood of a child bearing the recessive trait is one in four. The probability rises to two in four if one parent is homozygous recessive for the gene — for example, ww — and the other parent is heterozygous.

## When two heterozygous parents produce what type of offspring can they produce?

In addition, crossing two individuals that are both heterozygous will yield, on average, 50 percent heterozygous offspring; half of the remaining offspring, on average, will be homozygous for the dominant allele and half homozygous for the recessive allele.

## What is the probability of heterozygous offspring?

The chance of either parent being a heterozygote is 1/4, as calculated above. Then, the probability that both parents are heterozygotes, and the probability that two heterozygotes will have a heterozygous child, is 1/4 x 1/4 x 1/2 = 1/32.

## What is the likelihood that two heterozygotes will have an offspring with the dominant phenotype?

Above if the homozygous parent has two dominant alleles, then all of the offspring will have the same phenotype of the dominant trait. In other words, there is a 100% probability that an offspring of such a pairing will exhibit the dominant phenotype.

## What is the chance of the offspring having heterozygous genotype in a cross between a homozygous dominant parent and a recessive parent?

Terms in this set (23)

In a cross between a homozygous dominant parent and a homozygous recessive parent, what is the chance of the offspring having a heterozygous genotype? The probability of inheriting either an A, B, or O allele for blood type from your parent is 33.33%.
