The following is an assignment for homework for an intoductory biology class in college: Sordaria is a member of the ascomycete fungi, a group often used in genetics experiments. Yet, Sordaria is haploid. How can a haploid organism be used to test genetics problems when such things as crossing over require meiosis as the cell goes from a diploid to a haploid stage? How, then, can we use this haploid organism to test the same genetic problems as with Mendel's peas? Use an example to support your argument. Is it possible to use the same statistical procedures used in diploid species such as corn? Describe the experimental and statistical proedures that you would recommend to test the hypotheses that you would develop. It is supposed to be detailed. I will post later what my response is (i'm still working on it). In the meantime, please check it out and feel free to post comments about it.
