## What is not an assumption of the Hardy Weinberg principle?

Which of the following is not an assumption of Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium? * **Populations must select non-random mates**. * No selection must be taking place. … Individuals cannot change, but genotype frequencies in a population can change.

## What are the assumptions about a population in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium?

The five assumptions of Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium are a large population size, **no natural selection, no mutation rate, no genetic drift, and random mating**.

## Which of the following is not a requirement of Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium?

Answer: **natural selection** not a requirement for Hardy Weinberg equilibrium.

## Does inbreeding violate Hardy-Weinberg?

Inbreeding – How does it affect a population? In a small population, the sampling of gametes and fertilization to create zygotes causes **random error** in allele frequencies. This results in a deviation from the Hardy-Weinberg Equilibrium. This deviation is larger at small sample sizes and smaller at large sample sizes.

## Which of the following is an assumption of the Hardy-Weinberg model quizlet?

The Hardy-Weinberg model makes the following assumptions: **no selection at the gene in question; no genetic drift; no gene flow**; no mutation; random mating. What is the frequency of the A1A2 genotype in a population compose of 20 A1A1 individuals, A1A2 individuals, and 100 A2A2 individuals?

## Why is random mating important to Hardy-Weinberg?

**If allele frequencies differ between the sexes**, it takes two generations of random mating to attain Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium. Sex-linked loci require multiple generations to attain equilibrium because one sex has two copies of the gene and the other sex has only one.

## 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.

## What are the assumptions of Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium quizlet?

Terms in this set (7)

1) **Allele frequencies will not change from generation to generation**. 2) Genotype proportions will occur according to the square law. 3) HW Equilibrium occurs independent of allele frequencies.

## What is the frequency of the recessive allele?

The frequency of the recessive allele in the population. Answer: We know from the above that q^{2} is 1/2,500 or **0.0004**. Therefore, q is the square root, or 0.02.
