Question details

African Americans European Americans Hispanic Americans 51 45 57 40 26 40 31 27.5 AB 4 4 19 10 Asian Americans We can use the HW concepts to calculate allele frequencies. However, the ABO gene has 3 alleles, not two. So you will have to figure how to apply the HW concept to a three allele system. Here are a few hints: 25.5 1) Is blood type a genotype or a phenotype? 2) The frequency of all alleles added up must 1. 3) The frequency of all genotypes added up must 1 4) How many genotypes are there possible in the ABO system? 5) You could use the quadratic equation, but you dont need it! In Hemet, the B allele has a frequency of 0.086 among African Americans. What is frequency of the A and the O alleles in this population?
