*Myotonic dystrophy is an autosomal recessive disorder affecting 1 in 500 people in Quebec. What are the expected frequencies for the dominant and recessive alleles in the Quebec population? *

*Dominant?**Recessive?**What percent of the Quebec population would you expect to be homozygous for the normal (non-disease) allele?**Myotonic dystrophy affects one in 7500 people in all of Canada. What would be the expected frequency of carriers of myotonic dystrophy in Canada?**Assuming the population of Canada is 30 million people, what number of people in Canada would you expect to be carriers?*

#### Top Answer

Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium equation is p 2 +2pq+q 2 =1, where p 2 is the frequency of homozygous dominant genotype, 2pq is... View the full answer
