In maize, the dominant genes for brown color and smooth seed shape are linked and localized in one chromosome, and recessive genes for white color and wrinkled shape – in another homologous chromosome. What genotype and phenotype of the offspring should be expected when a diheterozygous plant with white smooth seeds is crossed with a plant that has white wrinkled seeds. Crossing over in meiosis did not occur. Identify the gametes produced by the parents.

1) Genotypes of parents: AaBb and aabb, 2) Gametes: AB, ab and ab. 3) Offspring: AaBb (brown smooth seeds) and aabb (white wrinkled seeds).
