Population Genetics Alleles- One, two, several Each individual- Two copies of the same gene Same alleles Different alleles Same Alleles - Homozygous Different Alleles - Heterozygous

Population Genetics Genotype - genetic composition of each individual Total number of alleles present in population 2 x total number of individuals Gene Pool - composition of alleles in the population

Population Genetics Gene Pool - fraction of gene pool consisting of different alleles (remember, variants of trait) Frequency of One Allele, p (fraction between 0 and 1) Frequency of Other Allele, q (fraction between 0 and 1)
