Card Set Information
What does mew stand for?
Equilibrium frequency of a deleterious allele
What does H
Observed heterozygosity in current generation
What does H
Expected heterozygosity in next generation
Which factors create a change in allele frequency?
Selection, migration, mutation, and genetic drift.
No genetic drift
What does Ne stand for?
Effective population size
Heterozygotes have higher fitness than both classes of homozygote
Both classes of homozygote have higher fitness than the heterozygote class.
Give an example of frequency dependent selection
The flower pollination example (see page 213 in text book)
the range of phenotypes an individual (or genotype) can express under different environmental conditions.
single base pair insertions or deletions due to uncorrected mistakes during the process of DNA replication
changes an amino acid to a stop codon
changes amino acid to another amino acid
no change in amino acid
a mutation caused by indels that aren't multiples of 3
Mutation accumulation lines
clones propagated for many generations to measure mutation rate
