I’m working on a Genetics question and need guidance to help me study.

HARDY WEINBERG EQUILIBRIUM HOMEWORK

Show all of your work for each problem.

The Equations:

Equation for allele frequency: p + q = 1

p = frequency of ___________________ allele

q = frequency of ___________________ allele

Equation for genotype frequency: p2 + 2pq + q2 = 1

p2 = frequency of _________________________ genotype

2pq = frequency of _________________________ genotype

q2= frequency of __________________________ genotype

Practice Problems:

What is the frequency of the q allele (white legs)?

What is the frequency of the p allele (pink legs)?

What is the frequency of heterozygotes in this population?

What is the frequency of birds that are homozygous dominant for pink legs?

What is the frequency of the p allele?

What is the frequency of the q allele?

What is the frequency of the homozygous recessive genotype?

What is the frequency of the heterozygous genotype?

What is the allele frequency for the dominant allele?

What is the allele frequency of the recessive allele?

What are the three genotype frequencies?

Assuming Hardy-Weinberg Equilibrium, how many individuals in a neighboring village of 3500 would be expected to be heterozygous?
