Problem Details

In rabbits, fur color is determined by a set of multiple alleles at one locus (gene) that have the following relationship:

C+ (agouti) is dominant to all other alleles

ch (himalayan) is dominant to c(albino)

cu (chinchilla) shows incomplete dominance with regard to c h and ca such that the genotypes cuch and cuca result in grey phenotypes

A) What breeding stock (parents) would you select if you wished all of the offspring to be chinchilla?

B) In one of the matings of rabbits, the litter contained 4 grey bunnies, 2 albino bunnies, and 2 himalayan bunnies. What were the genotypes of the parents?

C) In another mating, the litter contained 3 agouti bunnies and 3 grey bunnies. What were the genotypes of the parents of this litter?
