What is the probability that reproduction will lead to the transmission of VHS from an infected male to an uninfected female that is heterozygous for the mutant allele?
Note: Use facts
#1:heterozygous (Gg) for mutation reduces the transmission rate of VHS by 10%
#4: transmission rate (probability of transmission) of VHS is about.5% when females carrying the wild-type gene (G) are involved
Im not sure if its addition/subtraction or multiplication.
VHS is about .5% and being heterozygous reduces that by 10%.
So is it just: .5%(1 - .10) = .45% ?
