Unformatted text preview: very often. The pattern is consistent in the fact that it is at either 0% or 100% an equal number of times for each set of simulations that were done. 6. Genetic drift on a large population is much less noticeable than in small ones. The frequency of the allele stayed consistent throughout every simulation. The frequency stayed right around .5 with a small amount of variation. 7. I would say that genetic drift may be both predictable and random depending on what size population you are looking at. You can predict that a small population will have a larger genetic drift than a larger one. But you could not necessarily predict what allele would be dominant or what allele would be eliminated. With a larger population, you could predict a small genetic drift but of which allele may be hard....
