Unformatted text preview: this population in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium? Biological Sciences 106 Fall 2006 4. In Lop-eared rabbits, about 1 in 1000 has curly hair rather than straight hair; curly hair being due to a recessive gene. What is the proportion of curly alleles in the population? What are the frequencies of homozygous straight hair and of heterozygous straight hair individuals in this population? Assume that the population is in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium! 5. In a population of bark beetles in Minnesota, the following genotypes are observed: AA (feeds under bark) 0.6 Aa (feeds on top of bark) 0.1 aa (feeds on leaves) 0.3 What are the allele frequencies and expected genotypic frequencies? Explain. Is the population in H-W equilibrium? (NOTE: You do not need to analyze this statistically. Make a judgment based on the proportions). List several biologically valid reasons why the observed population may not be in equilibrium....
