Problem 14


In tigers, a recessive allele causes an absence of fur pigmentation (a "white tiger") and a cross-eyed condition. If two phenotypically normal tigers that are heterozygous at this locus are mated, what percentage of their offspring will be cross-eyed? What percentage will be white?

Using the Punnett square below where P = normal pigmenation and p = white

then 25% will be white (pp) and all of the white offspring will also be cross-eyed
