... (Drosophila) Task: According to Mendel’s Law, every organism has two factors. Every gamete has one factor. During segregation, the factors join up in twos to allow for variability of the new daughter cells. Mendel’s Law describes that an organism with genes, A and B, has factors, A, a, B, and b. there are only four possible combinations that can arise as a result of the gametes. These include AB, Ab, aB, and ab. The variety in combination is useful in producing genetic variability in offspring. Otherwise, for the combination to be perfectly independent, the genes are assumed to be on different chromosomes.
Drosophila which is the common fruit fly has been used extensively in carrying ou...
