Problem: Two parents of genotype AAcc, aaCC are crossed (i.e. AAcc x aaCC). Neither locus is sex-linked. The A and C loci are on different chromosomes. a) Give the expected resulting genotypic frequencies for F1 offspring.b) Now give the expected genotypic frequencies for an F1 cross.

🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Yeargain's class at UCF.
