Week 4 Lab 1. Heads Tails .6 .4 .5 .5 .3 .7 .7 .3 .4 .6 .6 .4 .2 .8 .3 .7 .4 .6 .6 .4 2. Heads= 46 and Tails=54 3. Frequency of heads is .46 and frequency of tails is .54. 4. The samples drifted more in the small samples sized than in the large sample size. There are small samples in which the drift was 70/30 and 80/20. But by taking the average of these, there is less drift in the larger sample. 5. The allelic frequency in the population of 10 either goes to 0 or 100% within five generations most times. There were a few instances where the allele made it to one hundred generations but not

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....
