16. What are the crucial assumptions of the Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium principle, and how do these assumptions make the Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium principle useful?
7 17. Given: A population in which a particular locus has two alleles, Aand a. Ais dominant to a, and the homozygous recessive genotype is lethal such that zygotes with genotype aanot survive to adulthood. The initial allele frequencies are 0.88 for Aand 0.12 for a. will the genotypic frequencies be among the zygotes produced from the random uniting of gametes with the initial allele frequencies shown above? What will the allele frequencies be among the gametes produced by the surviving adults (i.e., the allele frequencies after selection)? Show your work on this page. do What
