Brianna Haynes Kenneth Ruiz BIO Lab 1431 Homework #3: Population Genetics 1. What were the allele frequencies for the dominant and recessive alleles for the Tongue Rolling trait and the PTC tasting trait in your lab section? a. Tongue Rolling Trait a.i. R- .76 a.ii. R- .24 b. PTC b.i. T- .34 b.ii. T-.66 2. Create a table that summarizes your data for the lab totals for part 3 (simulation of HW equilibrium). Describe any trends in the genotype and allele frequencies that you notice.

Unformatted text preview: and genotype divisions. 3. Using the data from part 4, plot allele frequencies (both p and q) vs. generation using MS excel, for each of the initial population sizes (5,10,15,20). What were the initial allele and genotype frequencies for each population size? Were the final allele frequencies different? a. Initial allele and genotype frequencies were: p= 0.5; q=0.5;RR=0.25;Rr=0.50;rr=0.25. Brianna Haynes Kenneth Ruiz BIO Lab 1431 b. Yes the final allele frequencies were different, 100% rr. c. N=5 d.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
