Diagram the expected results (genotype and phenotype)for the crosses and self-fertilization progeny in the Linkage Testing work. Use only part (through Linkage 2) of the template provided. (The Mapping part of the template will be used next week). Include a narrative description of this experimental design that you have drawn out on the template and summarize what you will be looking for in the results that will allow determination of the linkage group to which your mutated gene of interest belongs.
