Hardy weinberg's princple - (Sep/01/2008 )
can some one please tell what does the folowing lettersb
p,q allele frequencies for example if there are only 2 possible alleles (p and q) and they are equally common that would be 0.5 (=50%) for both
p2 chance that p is present in both chromosome sets
q2 chance that q is present in both chromosome sets
both would be 0.25 in our example (=0.5x0.5=25%)
2pq change that this trait is heterozygous so one chromosome set has p and the other one has q
why is it times 2? because it can either be pq or qp which is irrelevant (in most cases)
so for our example it would be 0.5 (2x0.5x0.5=50%)
hey im sorry my question was a little bit mistyped
i want to know what do these elements stand for in the Hardy- Hardy Weinberg's equilibrium?
no examples needed, i know how to do the problem n thx for helping but I want the definitions,
its a question in my exam paper.
ok now? i hope my querry is clearer now?
n thx again for the explanation
but thats what I did explain
Also, try asking in the homework forum (for all the questions you posted today) as these questions are clearly homework!!!
its not homework but questions that came in exam,
n Coastal, our teaher is telling something quite different, that doesnt go in my head so im sorry if I offended you.
