Is Haemophilia a sex linked disease?how?

Answer Posted / mohanraj.m

Yes,The gene for Haemophilia is carried on the X sex
chromosome (females are XX; males are XY). A man with
Haemophilia passes the faulty gene to his daughters who
then carry this gene and may pass the condition onto their
sons. A man with Haemophilia does not pass the faulty gene
onto his sons because they receive a copy of his Y
chromosome (their X chromosome comes from the mother).

What ethical dilemmas should be considered when genetic engineering is put into practice?


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?

The village of Oblong has 400 normally-shaped residents. Transferrin is an iron carrier found in blood, and electrophoretic variation of this protein is determined by an autosomal codominant system. The citizens of Oblong were typed for their transferrin complements. The distribution of transferrin phenotypes was: 100 CC, 100 CD, and 200 DD. What is the frequency of the C allele?

What are the differences between Genetic Engineering and breeding?


Flower position, stem length, and seed shape were three traits that were studied by Mendel. Each is controlled by an independently assorting gene. If a plant that is heterozygous for all three traits was allowed to self- fertilize, what proportion of the offspring would be expected to show all three dominant phenotypes?
