BBS 1134 GENETICSLAB EXERCISE
To enable student to understand how to determine allele and genotype frequencies in apopulation in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium.
To demonstrate the effect of one generation of migration on allele and genotype in theconglomerate generation.
To study the effect of one generation of selection on allele and genotype frequencies.
Hardy-Weinberg Equilibrium states that under certain conditions, after one generation of random mating, the genotype frequencies at a single gene locus will become fixed at a particularequilibrium value.The conditions are:
Infinite population size (or sufficiently large so as to minimize the effect of genetic drift.
No natural selection.
No migration/gene flow.
Random mating within a single population.
Is sexually reproducing, either monoecians & dioecian.
Yellow (Dhal bean), White (Soy bean), Black (black pepper)
100 Dhal beans and 20 black peppers were prepared, mixed together.
The seeds were randomly paired.
The results obtained were examined.
Step 1 to 3 was repeated to examine F2.T: p= 100/200 = 0.83T: q= 20/200 = 0.17
