Intro Bio 151/153 Fall 2009 - Population Genetics Assignment – due week of 12/7/09 in discussion Name: Josh Litwicki Discussion Section #: Objectives: To see how natural selection drives favored alleles to fixation in a population. To see how genetic drift results in the random fixation or loss of alleles. To observe the joint action of genetic drift and natural selection. Assignment: Explore the Population Biology Simulations developed by Professor Kent Holsinger (University of Connecticut) at the web-site: http://darwin.eeb.uconn.edu/simulations/simulations.html . Use Mozilla Firefox as your browser. These simulations plot the frequency of an allele over time in a population. You should read the description of each simulation to understand what is being shown in the graphs. If the simulation doesn’t load in your browser (or doesn’t give you the correct values to choose from for w11) scroll down and click where it says: “If this simulation isn't displaying properly, try this one.” Task 1:

    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.
