Objective: Use the Hardy-Weinberg to find if calculate the frequencies of alleles and genotypes in the gene pool of a population. Introduction: In order to complete this lab, the background knowledge that is needed is the Hardy Weinberg formula and basic knowledge of alleles, genotypes, and natural selection should be known. Hypothesis: (Case study 1): If random mating occurs, then the allele frequency will stay the same. (case study 2): If selection against the f allele occurs, then the allele frequency will change. Procedure: I plugged in 75 and 25 into the marble generator and recorded that into the data table. I then took the new numbers that I got and plugged those in, in place of the old numbers. I continued to do this until I filled the data table. Independent variable: random mating (case study 1) selection against the f allele (case study 2) Dependent variable: allele frequency (both case studies) Data: Individual Data (collected on my own and not in collaboration) Case Study 2Allele FAllele fGenerationNumberPercentageFrequencyNumberPercentageFrequency
