    How do I solve the following problem. My professor gave us this assignment but never explained how to do if

    In maize, a strain homozygous for two recessive mutations, liguleless (lg) and glossy seedling (gl) was crossed to another strain homozygous for a dominant allele (B) that puts red pigment into the stem and leaves. The F1 plant was backcrossed to the liguless glossy parental strain, and seed from that cross were of the following phenotypes and numbers:

    lg gl + (liguleless, glossy) 172
    + + B (red) 162
    lg gl B (liguleless, glossy, red) 56
    + + + (wild type) 48
    lg + B (liguleless, red) 51
    + gl + (glossy) 43
    lg + + (liguleless) 6
    + gl B (glossy, red) 5

    a) make a linkage map of these three genes, showing map distances

    b) calculate any interference.

    Thanks for your help,

    Query, Genetic linkage map, first result.

    Genetic linkage - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Growing up, i marveled at star-trek's science, and ignored the perfect society. Now, i try to ignore their science, and marvel at the society.

    Imagine, being able to create matter out of thin air, and not coming up with using drones for boarding hostile ships. Or using drones to defend your own ship. Heck, using drones to block energy attacks, counterattack or for surveillance. Unless, of course, they are nano-machines in your blood, which is a billion times more complex..
