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:
