MG640 SP05PROBLEM SET 4 NAME_______________________________________ 1. You are studying a flower color polymorphism in the common morning glory, Ipomoea purpurea. Color (purple versus white) is determined by codominant alleles at a single locus. In the population you are studying, the locus segregates for two alleles, P and p, with genotypes PP (deep purple), Pp (light purple, and pp (white). In your study, you randomle sample plants from a population and observe the following number of plants: Genotype: PP Pp pp numbers: 120 125 55 a. Is this population in Hardy- :HLQEHUJ HTXLOLEULXP" 8VH D 2 test). b. Using the deviation of genotype frequency of the heterozygote class from its Hardy-Weinberg value, calculate the inbreeding coefficient in this population. c. Suppose that the inbreeding that is observed in the population of morning glory is caused by movement of pollinating insects among like colored flowers. You propose to study a random set of microsatellite loci in the same sample of plants in which you studied flower color. You propose to determine the inbreeding coefficient from these loci. In this random sample of
