Assignment: Mapping the Mutation

Using the templates provided here Media:Series 2 - Mapping.pdf, diagram the crosses that you will set up in the Mapping the Mutation part of Series 2. Compose a narrative that summarizes the rational for this work as part of your overall Series 2 goals and explain how the results will allow you to determine the location of the mutated gene responsible for the abnormal phenotype you are studying.

Diagram of Crosses All possible cross outcomes diagramed accurately, completely, clearly, and concisely. One or more possible crosses missing; one or more is inaccurate, information omitted , or did not include accurate predicted ratios of progeny for genotype and phenotype. 5 __/5
Narrative description
of rationale for and interpretation of crosses
Constructed a clear, concise, and accurate description of the rationale for setting up the crosses described. Constructed a clear, concise, and accurate description of how you will use the crosses to determine the location of the gene mutation responsible for the abnormal phenotype of interest. Rational for crosses missing, inaccurate, partially accurate; contains too much tangential information or is too simplified, is unclear. Interpretation of crosses missing, inaccurate, partially accurate, or unclear; contains too much tangential information or is too simplified. 5 __/5
Total 10 __/10
