Two Organisms One Of Homozygous Dominant Genotype And The Other Homozygous Reces

4. Two organisms, one of homozygous dominant genotype and the other homozygous recessive, are mated to produce an F1 generation that is then self-fertilized. If there are 6 loci being studied and there is independent assortment: (6 pts)

a)    How many different genotypes will occur in the F2 generation?

b)   What proportion of the F2 genotypes will be homozygous dominant for all 6 loci?

c)    If the initial cross occurred between AAbbccDdEeFf X AabbccddeeFF, would you change your answer to a and/or b? Explain and assume the 6 loci are labelled A through F.
