The proportion of a specific genotype relative to all other genotypes in a population
The proportion of a specific phenotype relative to all other phenotypes in a population
Hardy Weinberg Equilibrium Conditions
Random Mating, Infinitely large population, No mutation, No migration into or out of the population, No selection for either trait
like mating with like, where partners select each other based on a shared trait or characteristic
Random Genetic Drift
allele frequencies in a population change from one generation to the next due purely to chance
the measure of the number of offspring of affected persons who survive to reproductive age. Ranges from 0-1
x-linked genetic lethality, where mutation causes a very deleterious phenotype
1/3 of all copies of mutant allele will be lost in each generation
Coefficient of relationship (def.)
a measure of the proportion of genes shared by two related individuals as a result of their genetic relationship
Coefficient of Inbreeding (def)
a masure of the probability that a person has received both alleles of a gene from a common ancestor
when the probability of one event does NOT effect the probability of another event's occurrence
probability resulting from multiplication of the prior probability with each appropriate conditional probability
Probability resulting from dividing the joint probability for each event, by the sum of the joint probabilities
