Assume that a particular genetic condition in a mammalian species causes an inability to digest starch. this disorder occurs with equal frequency in males and females. In most cases, neither parent of the affected offspring has the condition.
(a) Describe the most probable pattern of inheritance for this condition. Explain your reasoning. Include in your disscusion a sample cross(es) sufficient to verify your proposed pattern.
(b) Explain how mutation could cause this inability to digest starch.
(c) Describe how modern techniques od molecular biology could be used to determine whether the mutant allele is present in a given individual.
