In the first cross left all of the offspring have red eyes. The left side is female with the most distal abdominal segments being not heavily pigmented, while the right is male and the two most distal segments are heavily pigmeted arrow.
With the inactivation of genes on one X-chromosome, females have the same number of functioning X-linked genes as males. A genetic condition occurs when you inherit an altered changed gene from your parents that increases your risk of developing that particular condition.
Most people with this premutation are intellectually normal. Turkeys are birds, which use the ZZ-ZW sex chromosome system.
Because there is no white gene on the Y chromosome, male flies can only be hemizygous for the wild type allele or the mutant allele. Many health conditions run in families. It was Gregory Mendel, an Austrian Augustinian monk born inwhom, while growing peas in his garden, discovered the laws that bear their last name and that constitute the corner stone of genetic science.

Christopher : And easily corrected?
They may have attention deficit disorder ADD , which includes an impaired ability to maintain attention and difficulty focusing on specific tasks. Remember, if the locus were autosomal the F1 and F2 progeny would be different from either of these crosses.
