If a population has an allele A1 frequency of 0.59 and an allele A2 frequency of 0.41, what is the expected frequency of the A2A2 genotype?  Answers have 2 decimal places.



Expert Answer

Step 1

A gene is the functional unit of inheritance and it contains two alleles. A dominant gene can be expressed in either the homozygous or heterozygous condition. A recessive gene is expressed only in the homozygous condition.

Frequency of alleles in the population can be estimated using Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium.

There are two equations in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium,

p2+q2+2pq =...
