5 5. If the lines are not flat, then further change might be expected in future generations. Reset the number of generations to a higher value, if possible. Is there further evolution? Did the A 1 allele become fixed in the population? If not, why do think the A 2 allele is still present in this population?

6 Fr equency of Allele A 1 Fr equency of Allele A 1 Fr equency of Allele A 1 Fr equency of Allele A 1 Activity 3- Selection on recessive and dominant alleles SIMULATION 1 and 2: Set all parameters to their default values, then set the initial frequency of allele A 1 to 0.01. Predict what will happen when you try fitnesses of 1, 1, and 0.9, then check your prediction. Now predict what will happen when you try fitnesses of 1, 0.9 and 0.9, and check your prediction. a) Predictions: 1, 1, 0.9 What actually happened: 1, 1, 0.9 : Generation Generation Predictions: 1, 0.9, 0.9 What actually happened: 1, 0.9, 0.9 Generation Were your predictions correct? Explain:

7 For the last two simulations, when was allele A 1 dominant (with respect to fitness) and when was it recessive? Explain how you know. Which will increase in frequency more rapidly when favored by selection: a rare recessive allele, or a rare dominant allele? Why? (Hint: Try running various combinations of initial frequencies and fitness values in AlleleA1.) Explain why a dominant allele is not always more prevalent in a population.
