Warm-up: Explain how flies make a good model organism. What other types of organisms would be good model organisms? Why are the traits you studied last night good for studying inheritance?
Warm-up from yesterday for first period: Create a linkage map for the genes A-E below based on the following information
A-E 5% recombination
A-C 42% recombination
B-C 18% recombination
B-E 19% recombination
C-D 23% recombination
D-E 14% recombination
1. Correct gene linkage
2. Online fly lab
