A blastomere was removed from an 8-cell human embryo, and its beta-globin gene was amplified by PCR. The beta-globin DNA was treated with an enzyme that cuts on either side of and within the normal allele (producing a small fragment), but not within the sickle cell allele (producing a large fragment). Electrophoresis of the treated DNA from the blastomere demonstrated the presence of both a large and small fragment derived from the beta-globin genes. How should you interpret this test?

People who can roll their tongues contain a dominant allele for tongue rolling. If people do not contain the tongue rolling gene, then they cannot roll their tongue no matter how hard they try. Consider the following situation: If a homozygous dominant tongue roller mates with a homozygous recessive non-tongue roller, then what is the probability of the offspring inheriting the tongue rolling gene?
