Question #200126

Having big, hairy face warts is a dominant trait in witches and warlocks. Gretchen loves her giant face wart with its long spiky hair. She is heterozygous for the condition. Moss sadly has no face warts. He is afraid he will pass on this trait to his children. Help him find out if it is possible his babies will also be born without face warts and if so what percentage will be born without?

Expert's answer

Moss has 50% probability that he will have babies without face warts. This is because not having face warts is a recessive gene. However his wife has face warts but she is heterozygous for the condition hence Moss children will have 50% chance that they will have face warts.
