See text and notes C. Short Problems 1a) This complementation mapping experiment defines 4 different loci; mutations 1,3, 4 and 7 lie in the same cistron mutations 5, 8 and 10 lie in the same cistron mutations 6, and 9 lie in the same cistron mutation 2 represents a single isolate for this cistron 1b) mutant 7 would not complement mutant 3 mutant 4 would complement mutant 9 mutant 9 would complement mutant 10 2a) Gene T; it is observed in only ½ of the gametes 2b) Gene T; same reason as above 2c) Genes Q, R and S are autosomal since this individual is heterozygous for two different loci. Gene locus S is not closely linked to Q and R on the basis of this data since the alleles representing these loci appear to assort independently. 2d) Genes Q and R appear to be linked, since the Q1 and Q2 alleles do not assort independently relative to R1 and R2. On the basis of this data, the Q and R loci are 5 map units apart.
