Which of the following will not result in variations among siblings?
A. Independent assortment of genes
B. Crossing over
Linkage will not result in variations among siblings.Linkage is the physical association of genes. When two genes in a dihybrid cross were situated on the same chromosome the production of parental gene combination was much higher than the non parental type. This means the non parental type combination (recombination) is not occurring which is responsible for crossing over resulting in variations.
