## What is allele proportion?

Allele frequency, or gene frequency, is the relative frequency of an allele (variant of a gene) at a particular locus in a population, expressed as a fraction or percentage. Specifically, it is the **fraction of all chromosomes in the population that carry that allele**.

## How do you calculate allele ratios?

The allelic ratio was calculated by **dividing the area of the FLT3 ITD peak by the total area of both the FLT3 ITD peak and the wild-type allele peak**.

## How do you calculate heterozygosity?

The calculation of heterozygosity can be done directly by **adding the frequency of the (three) heterozygote classes directly**, or by adding the frequencies of the (three) homozygote classes and subtracting the total from unity.

## What is allele frequency example?

Example: assuming that in a human population, there are **100 individuals**. Since each of them would have two alleles for a particular character (one allele inherited from the father, the other allele from the mother), the total number of genes in this population is 200 (=100 x 2). … Variant: allelic frequency.

## What is an allele frequency quizlet?

Allele Frequency: **determines how frequent the allele expression of a particular gene arises in a population**.

## What does gene frequency mean?

: **the ratio of the number of a specified allele in a population to the total of all alleles at its genetic locus**.
