Concept

Problem: Which statement about linkage of genes is false?a. Crossing over results in recombinant phenotypes.b. Crossing over between two linked genes can alter phenotypes of progeny.c. Genes on the same chromosome assort independently.d. Genes on the same chromosome that are far apart have a higher recombination frequency than those that are close together.e. Genes on the same chromosome are said to be linked.

FREE Expert Solution

a. Crossing over results in recombinant phenotypes. → TRUE

Different allele combination from crossing over results in recombinant phenotypes.


b. Crossing over between two linked genes can alter phenotypes of progeny. → TRUE

Crossing over occurs in meiosis which forms gametes used to form progeny.
