Cat Population Genetics
Investigating the evolution of a certain type of species can be very hard and can take a
very long time periods. In this case, we will go over the cat species, worldwide exist 37 extant

Given the rules of Mendelian genetics, how do
gene frequencies normally change from one
generation to the next?
Infinitely large population size?
No movement of genes among populations?
