The article “Linkage Studies of the Tomato” (Transactions of the Royal Canadian Institute [1931]: 1–19) reported the accompanying data on phenotypes resulting from crossing tall cut-leaf tomatoes with dwarf potato-leaf tomatoes. There are four possible phenotypes: (1) tall cut-leaf, (2) tall potato-leaf, (3) dwarf cutleaf, and (4) dwarf potato-leaf.
Mendel’s laws of inheritance imply that p1 = 9/16, p2 = 3/16, p3 = 3/16, and p4 = 1/16. Are the data from this experiment consistent with Mendel’s laws? Use a .01 significance level.
