Homozygous X Homozygous (Burm Genetics)

Homozygous X Homozygous (Burm Genetics)

Postby gmoth » Mon Aug 15, 2005 1:37 pm

Hi

Firstly as i am sure most of you realize the whole genetic issue is puzzling, well at least for me it is.
Im going to use an example for this one. If i am correct breeding a green burmese with an albino burmese is considered as breeding homozygous X homozygous??? :roll:
So yes if you are breeding a green with a green the obvious outcome is a green. But breeding two different homozygous(if thats correct) animals with each other puzzles me as to what the outcome will be.
Will they be some of them be albino greens, some albino some green some het, PLS ADVISE.
Lastly will they look just like a normal burmese although none of the parents are???

Now you confused me!! lol

OKay, as I see it, if you had to cross a Green Burmese with an Albino Burmese, the outcome would be double hets or triple hets?? Het for albino green. Hetro for Green and Hetro for albino.

In other words, You will get ones looking like greens, but they carry the genes for albino and albino green. Then you will get some that look like albino, which carry genes for green, and albino green.

I might be mistaken, but that's how I see it.

Thanks BB. i suspected you wouldn't get albino greens, but the look is what puzzles me, i mean if they all came out caryying both genes but looked normal that sounds weird. I think you theory is correct...

HUH??? :shock:

If you had to cross the babies from that, you would get Albino Greens. Are you looking for Albino Greens? I know of adults and babies floating around.

Is albino the dominant gene in burms, or is green the dominant one ?
If green is dominant, then all his babies are supposed to be hetero for albino, but green in appearance, if I understand his predicament

BB i dont think they would be het for albino green, in not sure tho..

If you bred a normal green and an albino green, you would get normal lookin greens that will be het for albino green.

If you bred a normal green and a normal albino, i THINK you would get greens that are only het for normal albino, isn that right?

If you crossed a Green Burmese with an albino burmese you would get normal looking babies that are hetero for both green and albino.

Those mated together will give you albinos hetero for green, green hetero for albino and green albinos.

Both Green and Albino are reccessive genes and are not expressed in the first generation.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Those who are afraid to ask are ashamed of learning.

Thanks BV. Just wanted to say that but you jumped the gun. Burmese are tricky. There is a whole article by Bob Clark on his site explaining this. Very good read.

I asked BV to post his article about genetics. Maybe he will, maybe he wont. Although it's about Cornsnakes, but I am sure you could apply it to anything.

Response from newenglandreptiles

Postby gmoth » Tue Aug 16, 2005 1:22 pm

This is what one of new england reptiles had to say. He knows his stuff...

There would be no chance of producing an albino green by breeding an albino to a green. You'd have to breed the two together to create offspring that are double-heterozygous for albino & green, all of which will be normal in appearance. Breeding the double-hets together should yield albino greens, in addition to greens possible-het for albino, albinos possible het for green, etc.
