The following information is relevant to the next three questions (Q8-10): Imagine a population where (p=0.4) and (q= 0.6). The fitness of the three genotypes in this population are: A1A1 fitness is 0.5 A1A2 fitness is 1.0 A2A2 fitness is 1.0 The population starts in HWE; that is, before selection acts, it has the following genotype frequencies: pA1A1 = p2 = 0.16 pA1A2 = 2pq = 0.48 pA2A2 = q2 = 0.36 8. (3 points) Using the relevant equation in Box 6.3, what is the average population fitness for the population described above? 9. (5 points) Using the relevant equation in Box 6.3, what is the predicted change in allele frequency of the A1 allele in the population described above, after a single round of selection acts on this population? (Report your answer to 4 decimal places max.) 10. (5 points) Given the relative fitness of the three genotypes in this population, what do you expect will ultimately happen to the allele frequencies of A1 and A2 over time in this population?
