In this lab we learned about the Hardy-Weinberg law of genetic equilibrium and we also studied the relationship between evolution and changes in allelic frequencies. We used our class to represent a sample population and did a variety of cases, each with different variables, to test the outcome of allelic frequencies for different situations. In order to accomplish our objectives we first had to know the Hardy-Weinberg equation and its use in determining the frequency of alleles in a population; how natural selection can change frequencies in a population; and how to calculate allelic frequencies. The five important Hardy-Weinberg conditions we followed were: the breeding population was large; mating was random; there was no mutation of the alleles; there was no differential migration; and there was no selection. MATERIALS: See lab packet eight for the materials for each lab exercise. PROCEDURE:
