Bio 201 My office hours Monday (12:50 to ~1:20; in Union cafeteria) Wednesday 1:30--2:30 (office number 616; 6th floor, Life Sciences) My lectures Will be posted on Blackboard within 24 hours after I give them I recommend reading the relevant chapter before class I recommend taking notes in class (note-taking is an important skill that you should try to develop!)

Population Genetics Hardy-Weinberg Equation In 1908, two scientists (Godfrey Hardy and Wilhelm Weinberg) independently came up with a fundamental idea in population genetics Hardy-Weinberg equation gives the expected frequencies of different alleles and genotypes (combinations of alleles) under simplified conditions How many AA individuals? How many Aa ? How many aa ? p 2 + 2 pq + q 2 = 1.0

Population Genetics Hardy-Weinberg Equation Given random mating of individuals within the population (and many other assumptions) AA = p 2 (frequency of A * frequency of A ) Aa = 2 pq (2 * frequency of A * frequency of a ) aa = what?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
