A dominant allele K is necessary for normal hearing. A dominant allele M on a different locus results in deafness no matter what other alleles are present. If a kkMm individual is crossed with a Kkmm individual, what percentage of the offspring will be deaf?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Let me TRY this problem as I am also working on genetics right now. I did a cross off Kk x kk and 0.5 are deaf. Also crossing Mm x mm 0.5 deaf. Multiply the b/c they are independent but occur together? = 0.25 = 25%¿¿?? If someone could check this? Lol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I was trying to solve for it but it gave me something completely different. I usually pair them and do the punett square so kM km kM and km with Km Km km km

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0however doing this method I get 50% of them will have the allele M which throws me off because that doesn't look right ( and isn't right anyway) However the method used is right. I think O.o

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I just checked my notes and the way you did it is just fine for probabilities but i don't understand how a punett square can't do it x.x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oH, awesome. If you got n e more questions, tag me. I think it's good practice. We could set up a discussion :3 I think my midterm is next Tuesday.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ahh. i have some pedigree question i was gonna ask if my prof didn't explain it to me right :3 but yeah, i'll try n come on tmrw n we can discuss it together.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yeeeh. I' still havent mastered pedigree yet. I just went over codominance and incomplete dominance and the basics.
