BICD100 Genetics Fall 2005 Reinagel Problem Set 9 Population genetics Origins of Mutations 1. A population called the “founder generation”, consisting of 2000 AA individuals, 2000 Aa individuals, and 6000 aa individuals is established on a remote island. Mating within this population occurs at random, the three genotypes are selectively neutral, and mutations occur at a negligible rate. a) What are the frequencies of the alleles A and a in the founder generation? b) Is the founder generation at Hardy-Weinberg Equilibrium? c) What is the frequency of the A allele in the second generation (that is, the generation subsequent to the founder generation)? d) What are the frequencies of the AA, Aa, and aa genotypes in the second generation? e) Is the second generation at H-W equilibrium? f) What are the frequencies of the AA, Aa, and aa genotypes in the third generation?
