Population Genetics 1. The frequency of an allele in a population can be altered by natural selection, mutation, migration, nonrandom mating, and genetic drift (sampling errors). 2. There are a total of (2)(384) + (2)(210) + (2)(260) = 1708 alleles in the population. Of those, (2)(384) + 210 = 978 are A 1 and 210 + (2)(260) = 730 are

Unformatted text preview: A 2 . The frequency of A 1 is 978/1708 = 0.57, and the frequency of A 2 is 730/1708 = 0.43. 3. The given data are q 2 = 0.04 and p 2 + 2 pq = 0.96. Assuming Hardy–Weinberg equilibrium, if q 2 = 0.04, q = 0.2, and p = 0.8. The frequency of B/B is p 2 = 0.64, and the frequency of B/b is 2 pq = 0.32....
