The curse of Sigler crack strikes again!
After spending several days finding ways to avoid studying for a Bio exam, I finally sat down and managed to gain some momentum until I came to the topic of Meiosis and sexual gametes. I got about halfway through and yet again became distracted by the whole conundrum of the tri-somal separation into gametes from either Mommy or a King. I am fairly sure that Stone Mason, yes that's his real name, mentions that Mommy is tri-somal as is Rex and that some of the gametes from each end with 2 sex chromosomes rather than the normal haploid 1. With this in mind I set about trying to construct a table of all the possible combinations from tri-somal gamete fertilisation with either regular humans or other tri-somals (I did not include regular nocturnals as I'm fairly sure that it's mentioned that they are sterile when they examine Marco Machete's family jewels).
My problem arose when I got to establish that there were 3 possible tri-somal makeups and could not remember which mommy was.
can anyone clarify if mommy is XXZ or XZZ please? I suspected the former but if that is the case I now am burdened by what an XZZ would turn out like and whether or not it would be capable of producing viable gametes.
It just goes to show what lengths I will go to to avoid revision!
