P-values and null hypotheses The P-value represents the probability that data is consistent with the null hypothesis In the chi-square test of whether genotype frequencies are in Hardy-Weinberg (HW) proportions Null hypothesis = population in HW equilibrium for this gene P value > 0.05 means we cannot reject the null hypothesis i.e. no evidence of departure from HW P value < 0.05 means we reject the null hypothesis i.e. one or more of the assumptions of HW is violated
Our data was significantly different from HW expectation P value less than 0.05 (1 in 20) • Reasons? – Fewer AA individuals than expected 24 vs. 34.1 – More Aa individuals than expected 128 vs. 107.8 – Fewer aa individuals than expected 75 vs. 85.1 Looks like heterozygote advantage (also called heterosis )

A real world example: sickle cell anemia Mutation in gene encoding ! chain of hemoglobin (Hb ! ) -over 100 alleles have been found in humans (most are rare) 3 common alleles in West Africa, where sickle cell anemia is common: Hb ! A , Hb ! C , Hb ! S S/S = severe anemia (low red cell count) abnormal structure of globin protein, red blood cells sickle shaped under low O 2 tension Carrying one S allele confers heterozygote advantage , due to increased resistance to Plasmodium -mediated malaria Normal cells Sickle cells The malaria parasite, Plasmodium falciparum , a protozoan.
