### Easy Hardy Weinberg Equilibrium [duplicate]

Hi My friend and I get 2 different answers to this question. I would like to know how to calculate the value of q. My friend says that 500/1500=q because there are 500 recessive alleles in the ...

### Can you find the amount of heterozygotes in a pop. from the phenotypes shown in the pop [duplicate]

I know the hardy Weinberg equation but that is for the amount of alleles not the amount of phenotypes. So if there are 600 black(dominant) organisms in the population and 400 green(recessive) ...

### Frequency of dominant phenotype (Hardy-Weinberg)

The question is: The frequency of a recessive allele a is 0.6. If a population is in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium, what is the frequency of the dominant phenotype? This question is a bit confusing to ...

### how can a recessive allele become represented in a significant number of individuals in a population

Darwin believed that individuals that are poorly adapted to their environment are less likely to survive and reproduce. This means that their genes are less likely to be passed to the next generation. ...

### Assumptions of Hardy-Weinberg rule

The post Solving Hardy Weinberg problems offers an easy explanation of Hardy-Weinberg rule. The current top answer explicitly does not talk about the assumptions of Hardy-Weinberg. A model makes sense ...

### Hardy weinberg equilibrium and Wright Fisher model

Is the hardy weinberg equilibrium derived by using a model similar to the Wright Fisher model, just without assuming genetic drift and finite pop size? Both seem to use the same assumptions except ...

### Question about the consequences of non-random mating and allele frequencies

I just began studying population genetics, and I don't understand something that is written in my lecture: Consequences of non-random mating: More homozygote and less heterozygote individuals in the ...
