Description
Lec15 BIOL207 2014-02-10 Population genetics cont’d A. Does recessive mean rare? (e.g. wrong answers to Midterm Question C2) NO !!! e.g. rare, dominant (AD, XD) diseases in humans… e.g. O blood type is most common and is homozygous recessive True: (1) mutations are rare (2) most mutations are recessive … … but this does not mean that mutations are recessive because they are rare (or vice versa). B. Hardy Weinberg Equilibrium (review) If population is in HWE (5 conditions: no selection, migration, mutation; random mating; large population size), then observed genotypic frequencies will match expectations calculated as p , 2pq, q . C. Are all populations in HWE ? NO !!! But they are often close; even for humans, for a rare 2ecessive disease can estimate the frequency of carriers based on number affected = q D. Can one locus be in HWE and the other not? YES !!! e.g. there can be random mating in a large population with no migration, but selection could affect the frequency of alleles at one locus, but not another E.
