Population Genetics in a FishBowl Open the PopGenFishBowl Simulation at Use the information from your text or from the “Background Information” at the simulation to answer questions 1-2. 1. Define biological evolution. 2.. What is the difference between microevolution and macroevolution? Use the information from the Crash Course Video or the “Background Information” at the simulation to answer questions 3-4. 3. What are the five conditions that must be met for the proportions of alleles to not change (Hardy-Weinberg Equilibrium) 1 2 3 4 5
4. What are the five evolutionary mechanisms? Give a brief description of each. Mechanism Description 1 2 3 4 5 Use the background information at the simulation or your own knowledge to answer questions 5-6. 5. What are some examples of selective breeding? 6. What are the three varieties of koi?
Part 1: Population in Hardy-Weinberg Equilibrium Click 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 equilibrium . 7. 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) p 2 = Frequency of heterozygous genotype (Rr) 2pq = Frequency of homozygous recessive genotype (rr) = q 2 = 8. Click “To Data” and compare your genotype predictions to the frequencies in the model.
