Question: 1you sampled a population with the following numbers of individuals...

Question details

1.You sampled a population with the following numbers of individuals and genotypes:

294 L1L1

252 L1L2, and

54 L2L2.

How many L2 alleles are in your sample?

2. If p = 0.4, then the population has more heterozygotes than homozygotes in the population. Assume the population is in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium and remember to account for the frequency of both homozygotes. True or False

3.If a population is in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium (HWE), then the frequency of the heterozygotes can never be larger than the combined frequency of both homozygotes. (Hint: You may want to calculate p2, q2 and 2pq for a few values of p [0.2, 0.5, 0.8, etc.] to be certain of your answer.
