Chelsea Crawford Gloria Villaverde Bio lab 7/5/2020 Lab 9: Population Genetics PRE-LAB QUESTIONS Assumptions: There are approximately 3,000,000,000 base pairs in the mammalian genome (genes constitute only a portion of this total). There are approximately 10,000 genes in the mammalian genome. A single gene averages 10,000 base pairs in size. Only 1 out of 3 mutations that occur in a gene result in a change to the protein structure. In the mammalian genome: 1. How many total base-pairs are in all the mammalian genes?
2. What proportion (%) of the total genome does this represent?
3. What is the probability that a random mutation will occur in any given gene?
4. What is the probability that a random mutation will change the structure of a protein?
EXPERIMENT 1: GENETIC VARIATION Post-Lab Questions Part 1 1. What is the initial gene pool of beaker #1?
2. What is the initial gene pool of beaker #2?
3. What is the initial gene frequency of beaker #1?
4. What is the initial gene frequency of beaker #2?
