How Can We Measure Allele Frequencies in Populations?

Explain the connection between changes in population allele frequencies and evolution, and relate this to the observations made by Wallace and Darwin concerning natural selection.

Summary Introduction

To determine: The connection between changes in population allele frequencies and evolution and relate it to the observations made by Wallace and Darwin concerning natural selection.

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

In the environment when one type of phenotype is preferred over the other, this will cause an alteration in the frequencies of the allele of a given population. When a certain phenotype is beneficial for an organism and is proved advantageous for the organism well being is favored and ...
