## How do you find the number of unique gametes?

Simply place a 2 above each heterozygous gene pair and a one above each homozygous gene pair. Then **multiply the numbers together** to obtain the total number of different possible gametes.

## How many unique gametes could a AaBb individual form?

There are **four possible combinations** of gametes for the AaBb parent. Half of the gametes get a dominant A and a dominant B allele; the other half of the gametes get a recessive a and a recessive b allele. Both parents produce 25% each of AB, Ab, aB, and ab.

## How many gametes are there?

Gametes are formed through meiosis (reduction division), in which a germ cell undergoes two fissions, resulting in the production of **four gametes**. During fertilization, male and female gametes fuse, producing a diploid (i.e., containing paired chromosomes) zygote.

## How many unique gametes could be produced through independent assortment by an individual with the genotype AA?

The correct answer is (b) **8**. In this scenario, each gamete will consist of five genes.

## How many types of gametes are produced by a Trihybrid?

The F1 hybrid produces **8 types** of gametes.

## How many unique gametes could be produced from a parent who is AABbCc?

The gametes produced by the individual with the genotype AaBbCC are as follows: Hence, only **four gametes** can be formed.

## How many genetically distinct gametes are produced?

But what about chromosome reassortment in humans? Humans have 23 pairs of chromosomes. That means that one person could produce **2 ^{23} different gametes**. In addition, when you calculate the possible combinations that emerge from the pairing of an egg and a sperm, the result is (2

^{23})

^{2}possible combinations.

## How many different gametes can be made by an individual with the genotype AaBb quizlet?

An individual with the genotype AaBb produces **four different gametes** in equal proportions.
