How can one draw a crossover between ABK and aBk where genes A and B follow the Mendel's law of independent assortment and gene K does not i.e. K is linked to B?

    $\begingroup$ Your question is unclear. What kind of a drawing do you want. Moreover, this questions seems to be primarily opinion-based. $\endgroup$ – WYSIWYG Jun 15 '16 at 19:38
  • $\begingroup$ I'm looking for a representation of the genome in a cell $\endgroup$ – Anonymous196 Jun 15 '16 at 19:54
  • $\begingroup$ I am voting to close as unclear mainly because we don't know to what locus is gene K not independent. $\endgroup$ – Remi.b Jun 15 '16 at 22:14

I'm not sure if this is what you're asking for, but in the following image, allele K (or k) is linked to B while A (or a) and B are independent.


Again, this is just a guess because your question seems a bit unclear to me.
