Selection Against Vestigial Wings Objectives: The objective of this experiment is to create a selection line against vestigial wings and observe a change in the gene frequency of vestigial wings ( vg ). Variables: Independent Variables: Initial flies used in selection line Number of flies used Selection against vg gene Dependent Variables: Change in frequency of vg gene Hypotheses: H 0 : There will be little to no difference in the vg gene and the wild gene of the expected values and the experimental values. H 1 : The experimental gene frequency of the vg gene and the wild gene will differ from the expected theoretical values. Conclusion: I reject the null hypothesis.

Intro: The initial sample used in this experiment was created by crossing a homozygous wild Drosophila with a homozygous vestigial (vg) Drosophila . This resulted in the F1 generation which consisted of all heterozygous flies. The F1 generation were then crossed which produced the F2 generation which were the flies used in the experiment. Procedure:
