Malarial susceptibility. Die: Place in Non- surviving Live: place in AA A S (Red/White) No sickle cell disease. Malarial resistance.

Repeat steps 3–5 until all the beans in the Gene Pool are used up. 7. At the end of the round, COUNT the number of individual red beans (A alleles) and white beans (S alleles) in the containers labeled AA and AS. These individuals survive to reproduce. RECORD those numbers in the F1 TOTAL SURVIVING ALLELES table. Put them in the gene pool afterwards. 8. Using the formulas below, calculate the % allele frequency for each allele in each generation: Total A x 100 = % Allele A Total S x 100 = % Allele S Total A+S Total A+S 9. Repeat the procedure for the F2-F5 generations. Record your results in the TOTAL SURVIVING ALLELES table.

Anthropology 200 DNA Mutation/Population Genetics lab Procedure: POPULATION 2 1. Place all the 75 red and 25 white beans back into the Gene Pool container and mix the beans up. 3. Simulate genetic drift during fertilization by PICKING OUT two ‘alleles’ (beans) WITHOUT LOOKING. 4. This population is in a non-malarial environment: DO NOT flip a coin. 5. Using the table below, put your alleles into the appropriate container. Genotype Phenotype Not infected A A (Red-Red) No sickle cell disease.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
