Unformatted text preview: E) Over time, the mosquito population grew back to its natural size of 100,000. Assume there was no difference in fitness between the two alleles of the resistance gene. How many mosquitoes are expected to be resistant to malaria? F) If it turned out that being homozygous for the resistance allele caused mosquitoes to become partially sterile, do you predict a change in the frequency of alleles in the population? If so, which allele would increase in frequency? Problem 13. Vampire fang length is determined by incomplete dominance in two alleles of the caninula gene: C L C L : Long fangs C L C S : Intermediate fangs C S C S : Short fangs In a population of 1,000 vampires, 450 have long fangs, 50 have short fangs, and 500 have intermediate fangs. A) Determine the frequency of each allele. B) Are the allele frequencies maintained at Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium? How do you know?...
