Hello,

For these questions, you need to interpret the data that you are given in the autoradiograph/paternity results. Let's take a closer look and address the questions you have:

1. If child 3,4,6 had evidence of disease, how would you interpret the above data?
To figure out this question, take a look at the results from children 3, 4, and 6 -- what do they have in common? First, they each only have one dash (all of the other children have 2). Second, the one and only dash they have is at the same location (height) in the autoradiograph diagram. What these dashes represent are alleles -- so now you know that children 3, 4, and 6 only have ONE allele at the locus being tested, AND they have the same allele as each other. Based on that info, you should be able to answer this question and interpret the data -- if children 3, 4, and 6 have the disease and they all have the same allele, that should suggest that the presence of this exact ...
