Unformatted text preview: The maximum heterozygosity is when p and q are 0.5. HsubE is expected heterozygosity Should be 2*p*q. The observed is HsubO (HsubO – HsubE)/HsubO This is a percentage difference from what is expected. We typically observe less heterozygosity than expected, as when we violate HWE it typically reduces heterozygosity. A deficit of heterozygotes might stem from non- random mating. The gametes that mate are not so different and thus copies f...
