The Hardy–Weinberg principle states that both allele and genotype frequencies in a population remain constant —that is, they are in equilibrium—from generation to generation unless specific disturbing influences are introduced. Wikipedia D4.1 Explain how the Hardy-Weinberg equation is derived http://www.flickr.com/photos/west-park/2610430399/

3
Consider two alleles A and a A has a frequency of p a has a frequency of q Therefore p + q = 1 As the two alleles are the only options at that locus Lets make a Punnet square: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hardy%E2%80%93Weinberg_principle

5
An interactive that charts the changes in frequency and represents them as areas:

6
D4.2 Calculate allele, genotype and phenotype frequencies for two allelles of a gene, using the Hardy-Weinberg equation Online practise questions Online practise questions And more practise And more practise

8
D4.3 State the assumptions made when the Hardy Weinberg equations is used Okay, so if: “both allele and genotype frequencies in a population remain constant—that is, they are in equilibrium—from generation to generation” What must be the underlying assumptions?

9
Basic Assumptions of the Hardy-Weinberg Principle -All phenotypes equal fitness, no natural selection -No mutation -No immigration or emigration -No genetic drift (infinitely large population) -No assortative mating Of course, at least one of these factors will be acting on a population in the wild

10
For the equation to work mathematically: -The organism involved must be diploid and reproduce sexually -Generations must not overlap -The trait must be autosomal

Online Quiz Further information: Good video Also revises directional selection: Salman Khan explains HWE
