Hardy-Weinberg Theorem: Describes why a population isn't evolving.
Equation and Calculations
HW equation shows allele frequency p2 +2pq+q2 =1 (p+q=1alsohelpful)
• p and q represent the relative frequencies of two possible alleles for a gene (ex. A, a)
• p2 and q2 represent the frequencies of the homozygous genotypes (ex. AA, aa)
• 2pq represents the frequency of the heterozygous genotype (ex. Aa)
