Video Tutorial – Allelic Frequencies Remain Constant From Generation to Generation Under the Hardy-Weinberg Equilibrium
July 15, 2014 Leave a comment
The Hardy-Weinberg law is a fundamental principle in statistical genetics. If its 7 assumptions are fulfilled, then it predicts that the allelic frequency of a genetic trait will remain constant from generation to generation. In this new video tutorial in my Youtube channel, I explain the math behind the Hardy-Weinberg theorem. In particular, I clarify the origin of the connection between allelic frequencies and genotyopic frequencies in the second generation – I have not found a single textbook or web site on this topic that explains this calculation, so I hope that my explanation is helpful to you.
