2. Is a new advantageous mutant allele more likely to become fixed in a population if it is dominant or recessive?
3. Explain why heterozygote advantage will maintain genetic diversity within a population while heterozygote disadvantage can maintain diversity among populations.
4. In the absence of selection, how is the magnitude of genetic drift affected by population size?
5. How does population size affect the effectiveness of selection?
6. Mutation is an evolutionary force. How does the strength vary with population size? What might this mean for the arms race between humans and their pathogens?
