Migration of individuals between different populations When individuals from populations with different allele frequencies mix, the combined population will be in H-W equilibrium after one generation of random mating. The combined population will be out of equilibrium to the extent that mating is assortatative. If we are considering rare alleles we can make the following approximations allowing us to avoid a

Unformatted text preview: lot of messy algebra in our calculations. For f( a ) = q , and f( A ) = p , If q << 1 then p 1 From H-W : f( A /A ) = p 2 1, f( A /a ) = 2 pq 2 q , f( a /a ) = q 2 Since most genetic diseases are rare, these approximations are valid for many of the population genetics calculations that are of medical importance....
