Genes A/a and B/b are linked and known to be 20 map units apart. Individuals heterozygous for both of these genes (genotypes= AB/ab) were mated with each other. If there 2000 offspring from this cross, how many of the offspring would you expect to show Ab or aB phenotypes?
I know that the gametes for each individual separate into 40%AB, 40%ab, 10%Ab, and 10% aB, but I'm confused on how to find the number of offspring from these percentages. If someone could help it would be much appreciated!
