The population is in H-W equilibrium. 1) A mutation is when a particular allele for a gene in an organism’s DNA is changed. This causes the organism to have differing characteristics than others related to it. These differences cause variations in a population. 2) A mutation at the gene level involves a change in DNA. A mutation at the chromosomal level it can involve an addition of a chromosome. 3) A population is a group of potentially interbreeding organisms of the same species occupying a certain area. 4) The gene pool is the sum of all genetic information carried by the members of a population. 5) This law states an equilibrium of allele frequencies in a gene pool (using a formula p 2 + 2pq + q 2 ) remains in effect in each succeeding generation of a sexually reproducing population if five conditions are met.
