The main differences between Linked Genes and Unlinked Genes are as follows.
|LINKED GENES||UNLINKED GENES|
|1. These genes are placed very closely on the chromosome and do not show independent assortment at the time of gamete formation.||These genes are located distantly and undergo assortment(segregation)|
|2. They show dihybrid ratio of 3:1||Show dihybrid ratio of 9:3:3:1|
|3. In Dihybrid cross, they show test cross ratio of 1:1.||Show test cross ratio of 1:1:1:1|
