    ok, so since both parents have one recessive gene, each one is a carrier and this is the Punnett square for their offspring SS = two dominant alleles, non-carrier, no symptoms Ss = one recessive allele, carrier, no symptoms ss = two recessive alleles, has disease, shows symptoms what percentage of the 4 children will show symptoms?
