Introduction: This lab was designed to familiarize us with evolution, the terms used when discussing it, determine genotypic and phenotypic frequency of a population, and explain the Hardy-Weinberg principle (Lab PowerPoint). The Hardy-Weinberg principle helps predict allelic and genotypic frequencies. However the principle is governed by five restrictions: Population is large enough to overcome random events, choices of mates is random, mutation doesn’t occur, individuals do not migrate into or out of the population, and there is no selection pressure (PowerPoint). If all these are true in the case then the equation p 2 + 2pq + q 2 , is used to determine the end amount of each genotype. In our experiment, using beads to represent the population we would pick out two beads at random and determine the genotype. Our hypothesis was 20 yy, 15 yr, 15 rr. Materials and Methods:
