Two heterozygous parents are crossed. If the two loci are linked what would be the distribution of phenotypic features in F1 generation for a dihybrid cross?

Solution :-

When two genes are inherited together, they are called linked genes and this phenomenon is called linkage. In case two genes are linked then there will be no segregation of alleles and the alleles will be inherited together functioning a single gene. If two genes are completely linked, then the F1 generation will show only parental characters in the phenotype and no recombinants. In case of incomplete linkage there may exist few recombinants but the proportion of parental phenotypes will be more.
