For two factorsâ€”starchy or sugary and green base leaf of white base leafâ€”the following counts for the progeny of self-fertilized heterozygotes were observed (Fisher 1958):
According to genetic theory, the cell probabilities are .25(2 +), .25(1 â€”), .25(1 â€”), and .250, where Â (0Â
a Find the mie of 0 and its asymptotic variance.
b Form an approximate 95% confidence interval for 0 based on part (a).
c Use the bootstrap to find the approximate standard deviation of the maximum likelihood estimate and compare to the result of part (a).
d Use the bootstrap to find an approximate 95% confidence interval and compare to part (b).
