how to solve the expected numbers? about the Hardy-Weinberg Equations.
1. Record the expected (predicted) Hardy-Weinberg allele frequencies and calculate genotypic frequencies in the starting generation.
Allele frequencies given in your starting population (Generation 0):
p = frequency of allele R: f(R) = 0.40
q = frequency of allele r: f(r) = 0.60
Expected Hardy-Weinberg genotypic frequencies in the starting population (Generation 0):
p2 = frequency of genotype RR: f(RR) = 0.16
2pq = frequency of genotype Rr: f(Rr) = 0.48
q2 = frequency of genotype rr: f(rr) = 0.36
2. If the population is under Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium, what should the genotypic frequencies be in the last generation?
Expected f(RR) =
Expected f(Rr) =
Expected f(rr) =
