To make this exercise more investigative, students can develop hypotheses based upon their knowledge about the chromosomal theory of inheritance, gene linkage
, and crossing over (Brooker, 2005) before they count the F2 generation.
This anorexigenic neuropeptide has a plausible biological role in the regulation of food intake and energy balance, and numerous studies have demonstrated that the SNPs in POMC gene linkage
with obesity-related traits.
makes for more practical breeding strategies.
They followed the patterns of inheritance through several generations, developing a genome-wide gene linkage
and association studies have pointed to a handful of loci on different chromosomes.
