4. a plant can have yellow (y) or green (y) leaves. it can also have smooth (s) or rough (s) seeds.? 4. a plant can have yellow (y) or green (y) leaves. it can also have smooth (s) or rough (s) seeds. answer the following questions about this plant. a) a plant has yyss. what is the phenotype? b) what possible gametes can the plant produce?
THIS IS THE BEST ANSWER 👇
A.) The phenotype is yellow, smooth
This is because (Y) yellow is dominant over (y) green. If an organism has a dominant trait, it will display without exception (YY, Yy, Ss, SS). Recessive traits on the other hand will only be displayed if both the maternal copy (Mom) and the mother (Dad) are recessive (yy or ss).
b.) It depends on what the YySs plant is paired with. Will it be paired with other YySs, with YYSS, yyss, YySS, yySS, YYss …? For example, if paired with other YySs, make a punnett square.
