PS 11 due 11/29 Remember the data you collected on the cat coat color? Here it is again! We’re going to do some calculations from your data to understand how Hardy Weinberg works. 1. For the spotted locus, we had 103 recessive homozygotes, 127 heterozygotes, and 26 dominant homozygotes. We also had 27 animals with at least one dominant allele, but these animals were not genotyped for the second allele. Calculate what the genotypes of those animals would be if spotted were in Hardy-Weinberg equlibrium . Hint: start by calculating q from the recessive homozygotes.

Unformatted text preview: 2. For white dominant, calculate the allele frequencies based on the class data. 3. For the orange locus, calculate the population allele frequencies, e.g. q pop and p pop . Given those allele frequencies, calculate the Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium frequencies for all possible genotypes, for males and females.
