    3. Oats are allohexaploid with 2N=6X=42. How many chromosomes does one of its diploid relatives, Avena barbata, have?

    An allohexaploid organism essentially has three diploid sets of chromosomes. So, it really has 6 copies of a given chromosome, yet it functions as a complete diploid. Hence, 2N=6X. Make sense? Therefore, a diploid relative would be 2N=16. ...

    Solution Summary

    The expert examines Oats are allohexaploid with 2N=6X=42. How many chromosomes a diploid relatives have are determined.
