###
Addition Rule

For mutually exclusive "OR" events, you add the probabilities

###
Multiplication Rule

For independent "AND" events multiply the probabilities

###
Allele

alternative forms of a particular gene that are present at a single locus.

###
Alelle Frequency

the proportion of a specific allele relative to all other alleles in a population

###
Genotype frequency

The proportion of a specific genotype relative to all other genotypes in a population

###
Phenotype frequency

The proportion of a specific phenotype relative to all other phenotypes in a population

###
p+q=1

For two alleles, present in a population, the relative frequencies are equal to 1

###
Hardy Weinberg Equilibrium Conditions

Random Mating, Infinitely large population, No mutation, No migration into or out of the population, No selection for either trait

###
Assortative Mating

like mating with like, where partners select each other based on a shared trait or characteristic

###
Consanguineous mating

matings between closely related individuals

###
Fixative Genes Can Lead to

Small Population Size

###
Random Genetic Drift

allele frequencies in a population change from one generation to the next due purely to chance

###
Founder effect

Specific alleles that are more rare, become not as rare

###
Bottleneck

deleterious alleles are amplified, when a population decreases then reproduces again

###
Dunker Blood type

example of Founder effect

###
Selection

Differences in reproductive or Genetic Fitness

###
Heterozygote advantage

Hemoglobin S allele confers resistance to malaria

###
CFTR

heterozygote resistant to diarrheal disease

###
HEXA

heterozygote resistant to tuberculosis

###
PAH

heterozygote resistant to abortion caused by fungus

###
Gene Flow

Migration, slow diffusion of alleles across a racial or geographical boundary

###
q^2

the freq. of homozygotes for the a allele

###
p^2

the freq. of homozygotes for the A allele

###
2pq

the freq. of heterozygotes

###
Disease Frequency= (for autosomal recessive)

q^2

###
Females allele frequency of X-linked genes; genotype frequency

p+q=1; p^2+2pq+q^2=1

###
Males genotype frequency for X-linked traits; allele frequency

p + q=1; p+q=1

###
Fitness

the measure of the number of offspring of affected persons who survive to reproductive age. Ranges from 0-1

###
Coefficient of Selection

1-f, or s

###
Autosomal dominant traits (mutations equation)

u= sq or u=(1-f)q

###
X-linked recessive if the phenotype is benign

u=sq/3 or u= (1-f)q/3

###
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 relationship (equation)

1/2^n

###
Coefficient of Inbreeding (def)

a masure of the probability that a person has received both alleles of a gene from a common ancestor

###
Coefficient of Inbreeding (equation)

1/2*1/2^n= 1/2^(n+1)

###
Mutually exclusive

either one outcome or the other will occur

###
Independent

when the probability of one event does NOT effect the probability of another event's occurrence

###
Prior probability

The initial probability of an event

###
Conditional probabilities

probabilities determined by observations or posterior information

###
Joint probability

probability resulting from multiplication of the prior probability with each appropriate conditional probability

###
Posterior Probability

Probability resulting from dividing the joint probability for each event, by the sum of the joint probabilities

###
Autosomal dominance risk for passing on mutant allele to offspring

1/2

###
Example of delayed onset disease

huntington's

###
Autosomal recessive risk for passing on mutant allele to offspring

1/4

###
Autosomal recessive risk for producing children that are heterozygous

2/3

###
For sex linked recessive traits, affected males...

daughters will all be carriers

###
Carrier mothers of sex-linked recessive traits

1/2 of sons will be affected
