-allele frequencies change due to selection (see figure 6.12)
-in populations with 2 alleles, sum of allele frequencies and sum of genotype frequencies must
add up to 1
-selection on mutations causes evolutionary change
-under frequency dependent selection, the phenotype fitness depends on its frequency
(increase in frequency, decrease in fitness)
-frequency-dependent selection maintains genetic variation
-in heterozygote superiority (overdominance), heterozygotes have highest fitness so that both
alleles are maintained in the population
-one allele favoured involves rate of change depending on initial frequencies of each allele and
its dominance
-heterozygote inferiority means that fixation of one allele is possible depending on initial
frequencies and relative fitness of homozygotes
-heterozygote inferiority maintains variation among populations and not within populations
-frequency-dependent selection involves negative frequency dependence
-phenotypes with higher frequency in the population have lower frequency of breeding adults
in frequency dependent selection
-some alleles that are lethal are maintained because alleles are hidden from selection by
heterozygosity
-homozygote recessive lethal alleles decrease dramatically
-at low frequencies of recessive, most copies are found in heterozygotes which will mate with
the dominant homozygotes
-deleterious alleles may persist under mutation-selection balance
-the higher the selection coefficient, the lower the fitness of the allele selected against

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!

Balancing social life With academics can be difficult, that is why I'm so glad that OneClass is out there where I can find the top notes for all of my classes. Now I can be the all-star student I want to be.

As a college student living on a college budget, I love how easy it is to earn gift cards just by submitting my notes.

OneClass has allowed me to catch up with my most difficult course! #lifesaver
