Can you show me how to do this hardy-weinberg equation?
A population has the following genotypic distribution: 10BB 15Bb 25bb
1) Based on your calculated allele frequencies, what proportion of individuals would you expect to be homozygous dominant, heterozygous, and homozygous recessive if the population is in H-W equilibrium?
2) Is this population in H-W equilibrium?
I think I am making this too hard. Can someone show the step by step in a simple way. I have a tutorial that I found but it has a different start point and my brain isn't translating the information.
The mathematical relation ship between the frequencies of genotypes and alleles in a populations was developed by G.H.Hardy and W. Weinberg in 1908. The relation ship , known as Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium, is based upon a principle which states that
"the frequency of dominant and recessive alleles in a population will remain constant from generation to generation provided certain conditions exist" read more
