Population Genetics
A.
Population
•
“Localized group of individuals…capable of
interbreeding and producing fertile offspring”
•
Isolated from other populations of the same species to
some extent

Population Genetics
A.
Population
•
Gene pool – All genes in a population at a
given time
•
•
•
Fixed allele – Only one allele at a particular locus in a
population
In a population, each allele has a frequency
Ex: Population of wildflowers with two alleles
(CR, CW) at locus for flower pigment
•
•
•
•
•
Homozygous CR – Red flowers
Homozygous CW – White flowers
Heterozygous – Pink flowers
Population – 320 plants with red flowers, 160 with
pink flowers, 20 with white flowers
Question – Allele frequencies for CR and CW?

Population Genetics
B.
Hardy-Weinberg Theorem
•
Describes distribution of alleles and traits in
populations that are not evolving
•
•
•
Population in genetic equilibrium
Frequencies of alleles and genotypes in a gene
pool remain constant over generations
Mendelian inheritance preserves variation
I.
Population Genetics
B.
Hardy-Weinberg Theorem
•
Permits calculation of allele frequencies from
genotype frequencies and vice-versa
Frequency of any allele can be described as a
number between 0 and 1
Ex: Population of wildflowers (alleles CR, CW)
•
•
•
•
Sum of allele frequencies = 1
Frequencies of alleles = p, q
•
p+q=1
•
(p + q)2 = p2 + 2pq + q2 = 1
•
p2 – Freq. of CRCR individuals in population
•
2pq – Freq. of CRCW individuals in population
•
q2 – Freq. of CWCW individuals in population

Hardy-Weinberg Theorem
•
Proportion of alleles in population doesn’t
change over successive generations, provided
five conditions are met
1)
2)
No net mutations
Random mating
•
Mates not selected based on genotype
3) No natural selection
•
Favors certain geno- and phenotypes, leading to
changes in allele frequencies
4) Extremely large population size
•
Random fluctuation (genetic drift) more prevalent
and influential in small populations
5) No gene flow
II.
Microevolution
•
Evolution occurs when populations
don’t meet all the H-W assumptions
Process by which a population’s
genetic structure changes =
microevolution
•
•
Changes in allele frequencies result from five
evolutionary processes
1)
2)
3)
4)
5)
Mutation
Nonrandom mating
Natural selection
Genetic drift
Gene flow
