Using the Hardy–Weinberg Law in Human Genetics

Using Table 19.1, determine the frequencies of p and q that result in the greatest proportion of heterozygotes in a population.

TABLE 19.1 Heterozygote Frequencies for Recessive Traits

Chapter 19, Problem 10QP, Using the HardyWeinberg Law in Human Genetics Using Table 19.1, determine the frequencies of p and q

Summary Introduction

To determine: The frequencies of p and q that result in the greatest proportion of heterozygotes in a population using table 19.1 given in the book.

Introduction: The allele frequency refers to number of times an allele occurs at a specific locus within a population. It can be represented as percentage or in fraction. The allele frequency is indicative of variation at a particular locus.

Explanation of Solution

According to the table given, to find the frequencies of p and q alleles, Hardy-Weinberg law can be used.

It is given that

q2= (1/ 100)

q = (0.1)

So the allele frequency of q allele is 0...
