I genetic illness has been found to travel in some of your relatives so you need to create a pedigree for generations to come so they know how likely it is that their children will have the disorder.
Use the coin flip tool to determine if each of you (you and your lab partner) are carries Ss or have the disease ss
After you have determined your disease status, use the coin flip as before to determine the genotype of your child.
Next, find another lab group who has a gender compatible child for you child to fall in love with.

The dice role should be set to 1 dice with 6 sides
Next, use the disease genotype to determine the genotypes of each of your grandchildren.
Next, use the dice role tool and limit the “sides” to the number of grandchildren you have to decide which grand child will fall in love.
Find one more lab group with a child of the appropriate gender and repeate the process of determining how many children they have and what genotypes each child has.
Make a Data Table to collect all of the information about the disease and paste it below.
