Unformatted text preview: 1/18/10 1 128 128 A simple model of mutation-selection equilibrium •Two alleles: wild-type allele, A, at freq = p deleterious allele, a at freq = q •Assume the mutation rate to recessive deleterious alleles, A to a = μ, and that back mutation is rare and can be ignored •Recall that the spread of a dominant, beneFcial allele is described by the equation Δ p = spq 2 /w Bar (see earlier slide) •This implies that a recessive deleterious allele is removed at rate Δ q = -spq 2 /w With only two alleles, any increase of the beneFcial allele is at the expense of the deleterious allele! Mutation-selection equilibrium occurs when: spq 2 / w Bar = μ p If the deleterious allele is rare then w Bar , which is 1-sq 2 , is ≅ 1 because q 2 0 Then, spq 2 = μ p, and sq 2 = μ . ¡inally, q 2 = μ /s, and q = μ /s 129 129 If a deleterious allele is not completely recessive, then: q = μ /hs, where h and s are the dominance and selection coeff. A small amount of dominance has a large effect on decreasing q, the frequency of the deleterious allele at equilibrium....
