Hardy-Weinberg Rule

Allele frequencies when populations are NOT evolving

hardy weinberg rule1
Hardy-Weinberg Rule
  • Allele frequencies will NOT change (stay in equilibrium) if the following conditions are met:
  • No mutation
  • Large population isolated from other populations of same species
  • Random mating
  • Individuals survive and reproduce equally

Hardy-Weinberg Rule
  • When would we want to know this info?
  • It provides a yardstick by which changes in allele frequency can be measured.
  • You can see if a population is evolving
hardy weinberg rule3
Formula for the allele frequency is

p2 + 2pq + q2 = 1

P2 is AA

pq is Aa ( x 2 because aA also)

q2 is aa

You can use the formula to track alleles from one generation to the next to see if the gene frequencies are changing.

p= frequency of allele A

q= frequency of allele a

p+ q = 1

Hardy- Weinberg Rule
  • If you know the percent of homozygous recessive out of the total population, you know q2. Take the square root of it to find q. q is the frequency of a. Then you can find the rest.
