Frequent question: What is an example of genotype frequency?

How do you find the frequency of a genotype example?

Example: in a population of 630 animals we count 375 animals with the genotype Z/Z, 218 with the genotype Z/z and 37 with the genotype z/z. The frequency of the three genotypes in the population is: 375/630 = 0.595; 218/630 = 0.346 en 37/630 = 0.059.

How do you find Hardy Weinberg genotype frequencies?

To calculate the allelic frequencies we simply divide the number of S or F alleles by the total number of alleles: 94/128 = 0.734 = p = frequency of the S allele, and 34/128 = 0.266 = q = frequency of the F allele.

What are the 3 types of genotypes?

There are three types of genotypes: homozygous dominant, homozygous recessive, and hetrozygous.

What is my genotype?

In a nutshell: your genotype is your complete heritable genetic identity; the sum total of genes transmitted from parent to offspring. There are four hemoglobin genotypes (hemoglobin pairs/formations) in humans: AA, AS, SS and AC (uncommon). SS and AC are the abnormal genotypes or the sickle cells.
