Question: this system is not in hardy weinberg equilibrium migration and...

Question details

This system is NOT in Hardy Weinberg Equilibrium. Migration and selection are both occurring. Please ignore drift.

Imagine a hypothetical deer species, Deer Deerus. In this system, we consider a two-allele, single locus problem, where the alleles are A and a. The trait affected by this locus is shininess of whisker, where AA individuals have very shiny whisker, Aa individuals have intermediate amount of shininess, and aa individuals have not shiny whiskers.

In the generation of interest, we start out with allele frequencies of p = 0.35 and q =0.65 in the gamete pool.

Assuming AA=1 23, Aa = 455, aa= 422 is the expected number of individuals of each genotype in the juvenile population of 1000 individuals and that final genotype frequency in the overall adult population is AA=0.q06, Aa=0.618, and aa=0.275.

1.) Assuming all adults contribute equally to the gamete pool for the next generation, what is the expected allele frequency in the gamete pool?
