The skin condition only shows up in the form of a homozygous recessive allele (aa). In this experiment, we studied the frequency of the dominant allele (A) in order to determine the frequency of the homozygous recessive combination. Null Hypothesis: The null hypothesis was that both the dominant and recessive alleles would show the same frequencies. Alternative Hypothesis: The alternative hypothesis was that the dominant allele would show a

Unformatted text preview: higher frequency than the recessive allele. Results: In this experiment we measured the frequency of the dominant (A) allele in Yemen Chameleons for skin color through five separate simulations using PopG. The mean for the dominant allele was 85%. The frequency had a slight rise to 90% in the 5 th simulation and a slight drop to 80% in the 3 rd , but overall the data averaged around 85% frequency. The experiment showed a high rate of frequency in the dominant allele and may have shown either higher or lower if we had ran more simulations and had a more accurate mean. The homozygous recessive allele showed to have a significantly lower frequency and therefore the allele for hypermelanism is very low in Yemen Chameleon populations....
