Verizon 8:42 PM PedigreeReview Updated.pdf Pedigree Review Sheet 1. The pedigree that follows indicates the occurrence of abinism in a group of Hopi Indians, among whom the trait is unusually frequent. Assume that the trait is fuly penetrant (all individuals with a genotype that could give rise to albinism will display this condition) a. Is albinism in this population caused by a recessive or a dominant allele? Support your answer using specific examples from the b. Is the gene X-linked or autosomal? Support your answer using specific examples from the pedigree c. Define your alleles and state the genotypes of the following individuals? L individual 1-1 ii individual 1-8 iii individual 1-9 iv. individual II1-6 d. What is the probability that individuals II-6 and l1-7 have an unaffected child that is homozygous? e. What is the probability that individual I11-4 is heterozygous?
