There are actually eight potential gamete types your organism can produce: ABC, ABc, AbC, aBC, Abc, aBc, abC, and abc. The chances of any of these being in any given egg or sperm cell is exactly the same– 1/8, or 12.5% (assuming they randomly assorted, and are not located on the same chromosome).

## What is the probability that a gamete?

Because a gamete can only carry one out of two alleles, there are only two possible outcomes for a gamete. The probability that a gamete will carry the allele for white flower color is ½, 0.5, or 50%. The probability that a gamete will carry the allele for purple flower color is also ½. Formation of gametes by meiosis.

## What are the possible gametes of AaBbCc?

Complete answer: AABbcc will produce 2 types of gametes which are as follows- ABc, Abc. The number of gametes formed is set by the number of heterozygous alleles present within the given genotype.

## How do you determine the number of gametes from genotype?

To calculate the total number of gametes that are produced by a particular genotype, a specific formula 2n is used, where n= number of heterogeneous alleles that are found in the genotype. Here, the given genotype consists of two heterogeneous alleles Bb, and Cc while one homozygous allele is AA.

## How many types of gametes are found in f1 progeny of cross AaBbCc and AaBbCc?

Therefore, types of gametes possible is 23=8.

## When AaBbCc is crossed with AaBbCc then the ratio of hybrid for all the three genes is?

AABBCc, AABbcc, AABBcc, AABbCc, AaBbcc, AaBBCc, AaBBcc, AaBbCc. The ratio of hybrid for all three genes for AaBbCc is $dfrac{1}{8}$. Hence, the correct answer is option (A). Note: The genetic cross is the purposeful mating of two individuals resulting in the combination of genetic material in the offspring.

## What skin color is AaBbCc?

Each dark skin allele (A,B,C) in the genotype adds a small but equal amount of pigment to the skin. There are seven different shades of skin color ranging from very dark (AABBCC) to very light (aabbcc). Most individuals produce a medium amount of melanin and are of intermediate skin color (AaBbCc).

## How many possible gamete combinations are there?

Maternal and paternal chromosomes are randomly distributed on either side of the metaphase plate. So for each pair there’s a 50/50 chance as to which side the homologs will go on (8.17). We have 23 pairs each with 50/50 probabilities. That works out to 2^{23} possible combinations of gametes from one human individual.

## How many gametes are formed from AaBb?

There are four possible combinations of gametes for the AaBb parent. Half of the gametes get a dominant A and a dominant B allele; the other half of the gametes get a recessive a and a recessive b allele. Both parents produce 25% each of AB, Ab, aB, and ab.

## What is the number of possible gametes that can be formed due to independent assortment?

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.

## What does possible gametes mean?

Gametes are an organism’s reproductive cells. They are also referred to as sex cells. Female gametes are called ova or egg cells, and male gametes are called sperm. Gametes are haploid cells, and each cell carries only one copy of each chromosome.

## How are gametes formed?

Gametes are produced by mitosis (not meiosis) and after fertilization a diploid zygote is created. The single zygote cell never grows or divides my mitosis. It can only divide by meiosis to produce haploid cells once more, which then produce the main adult body.

## What is the percentage or chance of getting the AB from the genotype AABb?

AaBB, the probability of generating an AB gamete is 1/2. For genotype AABb, the probability of generating an AB gamete is 1/2. Again, because both genotypes have equal probabilities, the final probability of the parent generating an AB gamete is (1/2) × (1/2) + (1/2) × (1/2) = 2/4 = 0.5 = 50%.
