BGYB51H3 Lecture 15 Notes
-population genetics focuses on qualitative traits in which phenotypes fall into discrete
categories
-population genetics assumes that these discrete phenotypes are determined by genotypes and
not affected by the environment
-internal and external environment is important for the development of most traits
-other proteins can affect the expression of the phenotype
-biotic and abiotic factors affect phenotype
-phenotypes of individuals vary even when genotypes are the same
-rearing clones of plants with known genotypes in different environments produces different
phenotypes
-quantitative traits are characteristics for which phenotypes show continuous variation
-quantitative traits are determined by the environment and many genes
-quantitative traits focus on phenotypes and heritability as well as statistical properties of
population traits
-typical distribution of quantitative traits is normal distribution
-quantitative genetics involves measuring heritability, different lifetime reproductive success
and predicts effect of selection on phenotypes
-population level measures the fraction of the variation in a trait that is due to variation in
genes
-the greater the relative effect of genes on a trait, the stronger the evolutionary response
-the greater the relative effect of the environment on a trait, the weaker the evolutionary
response
-strong environment effect produces no evolutionary change
-variation in genes is affected by additive genetic variation and dominance genetic variation
-dominance genetic variation involves differences in dominance effects of genes
-additive genetic variation involves differences in the additive effects of genes
-heritability depends on additive genetic variation
-additive genetic variation can predict how offspring will turn out in terms of reproduction and

-narrow sense heritability (h2) is an equation to predict the response of selection and the
fraction of total variation in a trait that is due to additive genetic variation
-to measure heritability, must control environmental effects
-in parent t offspring regression, similarities may be due to similar environments and genes

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.
