Genetic Variation in Individuals and Populations: Mutation and Polymorphism . Lecture 8. FACTORS THAT DISTURB HARDY-WEINBERG EQUILIBRIUM. A number of assumptions underlie the Hardy-Weinberg law: Population is large and mating is random .
3. Selection for or against particular alleles and new mutations adding alleles are not significant
