13.Define heritability.
14.Given a single locus, two-allele system, A and a, and assuming H-W equilibrium, what are the expected frequencies of the AA, Aa, and aa genotypes?
15.There are two alleles at a locus. The first allele has a frequency of 0.75.What is the frequency of the second allele?
16.Assume H-W equilibrium, and a single-locus, two allele (A & a) system. The frequency of the AA genotypes is 0.4. What is the frequency of the "a" allele?
