Fry has two small eyes, Leela has one big eye, their child would have three eyes, one big, two small  tongue

Ummmmmmm I'd say there is a 50/50 chane of 1 or 2 eyes, maybee 3 because the child might inhereit a normal pair of human eyes plus Leelas eye.

Imagine if Nibbler came into the equation.

mmmh depends of many things. We don't know if Leela is an alien or a mutant. If she's an alien, then their kid could be a strange crossbreeding, he/she can have one, or two or maybe three eyes... but anyway, he/she will be sterile. (It's a biologycal matter).

But if Leela is a mutant, their kid could have one eye or two eyes, depends if the character "One eye" is dominant. If it is, their kid will have one eye. In the next generation, maybe their grandchild could have two eyes again...

Right, this is how it would work...
Quite simply, the kid would have two eyes, but only one would work...  smile

Well, we'd have to assume Leela's homozygous for that to work.

It's a genetics thing. You may or may not be confused by my explanation.

Well, you can have a blue eyes gene and a brown eyes gene and only have brown eyes, because the brown eyes thing is dominant. And half of your sperm/eggs will carry the blue eye gene, the other half will carry the brown eye gene.

So in Leela's case, if she's purebred, she only has One-eye genes in which case all her kids will get a one-eye gene. If One-eye genes are dominant, the kids are guaranteed to be one-eyed. That's what Slavon was saying, but it's only one possibility.  It could be she's heterozygous, has the 2-eye gene too, it's just not as dominant as the One-eye gene, which is why she has one eye. So in this case, her kids with a normal 2-eyes guy would have a 50/50 chance of one or two eyes because half her eggs have the one-eye, half have the two-eye gene.

Slavon was assuming that the one-eye gene is dominant and that Leela is homozygous (has only one-eye genes) in his example.

Confuse you? I just crammed 2 days worth of Bio lectures into like 3 minutes worth of reading.

But what if both the "One eye" gene and the "Two Eye" gene is dominant, then their kid would be heterozygous and what gene would be the one showing? After all, they are diffrent species so both genes can be dominant.

They wouldn't be equally dominant/recessive. Dominance isn't a "got it or don't got it" thing, it comes in varying degrees.

I think I will be so sure. See what Nix said if you need a reason.

Maybe you're thinking of a different can of worms in which eye number & form would be controlled by more than one gene (Which is the case with hair color). In that case, have a blast. But recognize it's a deviation from everything we've talked about thus far.

I have my own theory: they will have whatever ammount of eyes the wizard grants them. Sorry to stomp on all your scientific analogies and whatnot mad capper, but I think we all agree that the wizard is a much stronger force than science.

OK, what do the worms have to do with this? Futuristic sex toys? Extra Eye-genes?

Just saying if you introduce the question of whether eye number is controlled by more than one gene (which in reality it is) then we'll have a whole 'nother dscussion. But in this one, NOBODY would know what they're talking about, unless we have a genetics professor in here.

We have plenty of professors in here, maybe they should have a go...

XX XX <--- Wizard move one-eyed gene to the last X chromosome.
XX XY <--- Then he moves Fry's two eyed gene to the Y chromosome. If it's a boy, two eyes. A girl, one eye.

oh no!!

2 years of biology are pursuiting me again!!

Every night i awake screaming for Biology (sorry Sarge, i know that this is your phrass, but i had to said it)

anyway i love diagrams.

Simply:
Mutants are mutations of anything, if Leela is a mutant (i don`t guess, but dont care) she would had more normal human gens , in th other hand also depends how old is the mutatin... damn,, i`m speaking of matters that i neveld speak..arggg   evil laugh

I think Leela's genes are more predominent here.  Use Alkazar as the model (male of female) and knock yourself out.

Alkazar is a moot point.  Alkazar is a giant shapeshifting bug.  Alkazar can't be used as a model for anything, unless you're talking about giant shapeshifting bugs.

Alkazar as the model for what? And there's no real reason why Leela's genes would be dominant over normal human genes. They COULD be, but that's like saying "I think if Fry flipped a coin, it'd land tails-up". Besides, Alkazar's a crazy insect critter. He and Leela couldn't have a kid anyhow.

Who cares?! ;-)

Solution to problem:

1) Murder Fry. (Apologies to FrysGIRL)
2) Put child up for adoption.
3) Commit suicide when I realise I'm pursuing a fictional cartoon character.

Howzat?
