6 How does selection affect HWE? Population size: 1000 individuals Alleles: A 1 A 2 Frequencies: 0.5 0.5 Genotypes: A 1 A 1 A 1 A 2 A 2 A 2 Frequencies: 0.25 0.50 0.25 Count: 250 500 250 Fitness (w) 0.6 0.8 1.0

7 What are the allele frequencies after selection? First, calculate the new genotype counts (= old genotype counts * w): A 1 A 1 A 1 A 2 A 2 A 2 Total 250(0.6) 500(0.8) 250(1.0) 150 400 250 800 Now calculate the new allele frequencies: A 1 : (2*150 + 400)/ 1600 = 700/1600 = 0.438 A 2 : (400 + 2*250)/ 1600 = 900/1600 = 0.562 The frequency of A 2 has increased!
