How Can We Measure Allele Frequencies in Populations?

Design an experiment to determine if a population is evolving.

Summary Introduction

To design: An experiment that can be used to test the evolutionary status of a population.

Introduction: Population can be defined as a group of people that belong to a particular species, and share the same gene pool and live in a common geographical area. The population of an area can be affected by several factors which include the mortality rate, birth rate, environmental factors, and exposure to diseases.

Explanation of Solution

In order to determine the evolution in population, the researcher must first select a specific population. After the selection of the population, the researcher should determine the allele frequency of genes, the copy number variations types and look for single nucleotide polymorphism in that population.

The researcher should now select another population which is assumed to be evolving. In this population, the same parameters are analyzed...
