11. The estimated Darwinian fitness of the genotype with white ( W ) flowers is: A. 0.25 B. 0.5 C. 1.0 D. 1.5 E. None of these answer is correct 12. The average fitness of the population is: (hint: this can be calculated without calculating the fitness of all of the genotypes ): 13. The change in the gene pool frequency of the R genotype after one generation of natural selection was: 14. The fitness of the G genotype indicates that: EEMB2 Final Salmon Version: 0 Page: 4

15. In general, which statement summarizes the process of evolution by natural selection: A. Genotypes with higher survival are the fittest B. Genotypes with higher fecundity are the fittest C. Genes that code for phenotypes that leave more offspring in the next generation accumulate in the gene pool D. Phenotypes that code for genotypes that are better gene transport machines are favored by natural selection E. Both answers (A) and (B) are correct Use the following information for the next 5 questions (until you see a solid line): John Doe is interested in the hereditary basis of susceptibility to a form of a common cold virus. He collected a random sample of people and genotyped them at the D locus for two alleles: D High , which he hypothesizes increases susceptibility to the virus, and D Normal . The sample is tabulated below as the entire sample and also the subset of individuals who had no antibodies to the virus (uninfected). 16. Compared to the entire sample, and based on allele frequencies in the gene pools: 17. Concerning genotype frequencies, John Doe’s null model predicts: EEMB2 Final Salmon Version: 0 Page: 5

    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.
