is the frequency of the recessive allele. ² is the frequency of individuals with the homozygous dominant genotype.

## How do you find the frequency of a recessive allele?

To determine q, which is the frequency of the recessive allele in the population, simply **take the square root of q ^{2}** which works out to be 0.632 (i.e. 0.632 x 0.632 = 0.4).

## What is P and Q in Hardy-Weinberg?

The Hardy-Weinberg equation is a mathematical equation that can be used to calculate the genetic variation of a population at equilibrium. … where p is **the frequency of the “A” allele and q is the frequency of the “a” allele in the population**.

## How do you find the Hardy-Weinberg allele frequency?

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 will happen to the frequency of the recessive allele?

The answer is the frequency of the recessive allele **will increase**.

## Why is there a 2 in 2pq?

The term p2 represents **the frequency of dominant homozygotes (AA)** and the term q2 represents the frequency of recessive homozygotes (aa). p represents the allele frequency of allele A, and q represents the allele frequency of the allele a.

## Why is Model 1 labeled selective mating?

Why is Model 1 labeled “Selective Mating”?-It is labeled selective mating **because they specifically selected beatles who were homozygousrecessive and heterozygous and mated them with each other**.
