VNTR DNA Fingerprint

Homework: Using the previous analysis of a DNA fingerprint as a model:

(1)
Identify each of the bands in the fingerprint with the alleles at the loci in the chromosomes.
(2)
Individuals A and C are each suspected of being the father of individual B. Based on your analysis in Part 1, which (if either) is the father?
(3) Given your identification, reconstruct the fingerprint genotype of the mother.
