Hardy-Weinberg Equilibrium

Solving Hardy-Weinberg Problems

Questions to answer:

  1. How is variation generated in a population?  How is it maintained?
  2. How is it possible that individuals with two different genotypes can have the same phenotype?
  3. Explain how each of the following features of a (hypothetical) population in Hardy-Weinberg Equilibrium leads to that population not evolving over time:
  1. large population size
  2. random mating
  3. no immigration/emigration
  4. no net mutation rate
  5. a constant environment
  1. Answer questions A-C in the “Solving HW Problems” section of the presentation.
  2. If no real population of organisms is in Hardy-Weinberg Equilibrium, why is it a useful tool to study the effects of evolution?
