Name:Virtual Lab - Population Genetics in a FishBowlOpen the PopGenFishBowl at Start by clicking “Background Information.” Read this information to answerthe following: 1. Define biological evolution. 2.. What is the difference between microevolution and macroevolution?3. What are the five conditions that must be met for the proportions of alleles to not change (Hardy-Weinberg Equilibrium)123454. What are the five evolutionary mechanisms? Give a brief description of each.MechanismDescription12345
5. What are some examples of selective breeding?6. What are the three varieties of koi?Part 1: Population in Hardy-Weinberg EquilibriumClick the Home icon to go back to the main menu and click on “Run Experiments”.First, we will work with the default parameters. This default population is in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium7. Before switching over to the data collection tab, calculate the following variables. The frequency of the dominant allele (p) = 0.5 and the recessive alle (q) = .5 (p + q = 1) Frequency of homozygous dominant genotype (RR) p2Frequency of heterozygous genotype (Rr) 2pq = Frequency of homozygous recessive genotype (rr) = q28. Click “To Data” and compare your genotype predictions to the frequencies in the model..= =
