ANALYSIS OF MORPHOGENETIC TRAITS AMONG THE POPULATION OF RIE MYSURU CAMPUS TO DETERMINE THE FREQUENCY OF THE PHENOTYPE

VAREISHANG TANGPU, RESHMA MD

Abstract

RIE Mysuru is a residential education institute, where students come from different parts of India. A variety of genetic traits are observed among the population within the campus. It is intended to study 15 different traits in order to determine the frequency of the phenotype. It was observed that 67% individuals among the population can roll their tongue, 54% have attached earlobes and 98% are right handed. Hitchhiker’s thumb is absent in 77% of the population.
