## What is the genotypic ratio for a Trihybrid cross?

For such cases, the forked line method is used to find the genetic ratios. In this example below, the trihybrid cross genotypic ratio is **27:9:9:9:3:3:3:1**.

## How many different offspring genotypes are expected in a Trihybrid cross?

How many different offspring genotypes are expected in a trihybrid cross between parents heterozygous for all three traits? How many phenotypes are expected if the traits behave in a dominant and recessive pattern? a. **64 genotypes**; 16 phenotypes.

## How many outcomes does a Trihybrid cross have?

TRIHYBRID CROSSES. Forked-line method: For three or more unlinked events, Punnett squares, which do a complete genotypic analysis, tend to become quite cumbersome. With three unlinked genes, each parent can produce 8 different types of gametes, which generates **64 possible genotypic combinations** in the Punnett Square.

## What is a Trihybrid?

: **an individual or strain that is heterozygous for three pairs of genes**.

## What is Trihybrid inheritance?

It is **the cross between the two individuals of a species for studying inheritance of three pairs of factors or alleles belonging to three different genes**.

## What is the genotype ratio for this cross?

The genotypic ratio for this cross is written **1:2:1**. In animals and plants, each gene has 2 alleles or variations, one from each parent. When male and female gametes come together (cross) all the phenotype variations for the offspring are predicted using the Punnett square grid.

## What is the Trihybrid ratio if AaBbCc is Selfed?

So, the correct option is ‘**27:9:9:9:3:3:3:1**‘. Explanation: A plant with genotype AABbCC, is subjected to self pollination, in the F2 generation 3:1 ratio of progeny are formed, because the parent show only one pair of contrasting characters. So, the correct option is ‘3:1’.

## What is the number of phenotypes possible from AaBbCc AaBbCc?

There is a formula to know the number of possible phenotypes from two parents which is ${2^n}$ in which n describes the number of pairs of characters. In the above cross$AaBbCc times AaBbCc$, there are three pairs of characters which are Aa, Bb, Cc. Therefore, the number of possible phenotypes are **${2^3} = 8$**.
