Phenylketoneuria (PKU) is a recessive condition. There are 40,000 individuals in a population of 100,000 that have the disease. What are the total number of alleles in the population?
The answer is 200000 but I need help undertanding how. Thanks!
The question says that there is a population of 100,000 people. Out of 100,000 40,000 individuals are affected by the Phenylketonuria
We need to determine the total number of alleles present in the population.
Sorry about that. What wasn’t helpful?
