How Can We Measure Allele Frequencies in Populations?

Can populations evolve without changes in allele frequencies?

Summary Introduction

To determine: Whether populations can evolve without changes in allele frequencies.

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

For evolution to take place the population has to undergo changes in the frequencies of their alleles. Evolution refers to the change in the genome of an organism over a period of time and the allele frequency is indicative of variation at a particular locus...
