Evolution

Hardy-Weinberg Principle


I ntro

Intro

  • Last day we left off talking about populations…

  • Populations geneticists are able to quantify the total number of alleles within a population ==this is known as the gene pool

  • They are able to accomplish this by measuring each allele frequency, which is the proportion of gene copies in a population for a given allele

  • Therefore evolutionary changes in populations can be quantitatively measured by looking for changes in allele frequencies


E xample

Example


H mmm

Hmmm…

  • In terms of evolution, would the dominant form of a moth wing become more and more common over time?

  • Do allele frequencies remain constant or change over time?

  • These questions were answered independently (think Darwin vs. Wallace) by a mathematician named Hardy and physicist named Weinberg== thus Hardy-Weinberg principle


T he principle

The Principle

  • Allele frequencies will not change over time (generation-generation) if the following conditions are met:

  • The population is very large

  • Mating opportunities are equal

  • No mutations occur

  • No migration occurs

  • All individuals have an equal chance at reproductive success==no natural selection


E quation

Equation

  • The H-W-P is often expressed using the following equation (for a gene with only 2 alleles==A/a):

  • let p=frequency of A and q=frequency of a, then

    p+q=1

    (p+q)2= 1

    p2 + 2pq + q2 = 1, where

    p2= frequency of AA; 2pq= frequency of Aa; and q2 = frequency of aa


M oth example

Moth example

Note: genotype frequencies will remain the same from generation to generation as long mating is random
