Using the Hardy–Weinberg Law in Human Genetics

In a given population, the frequencies of the four phenotypic classes of the ABO blood groups are found to be A = 0.33, B = 0.33, AB = 0.18, and i = 0.16. What is the frequency of the i allele?

Summary Introduction

To determine: The frequency of i allele in a given population of ABO blood groups.

Introduction: Allele refers to a pair of genes present on a chromosome. Alleles are responsible for hereditary traits in organisms. Alleles are generally present in pairs of two.

Explanation of Solution

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.

In the given population the frequency of allele is given below:

A= 0...
