Carnations exhibit "blended inheritance" (co-dominant or intermediate inheritance). 2 alleles for color R and R' produce red and white flowers, respectively, when in homozygous condition. When an individual possesses bothe alleles (RR') their phenotype is pink. If the allele frequency for R is 0.23, how many pink individuals would you expect in a population of 2500, if you assume the population is in Hardy-Weinberg equilibruim. Help is given.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com October 9, 2019, 4:33 pm ad1c9bdddf
Hardy Weinberg equilibrium questions revolve around the following equation:
p^2 + 2pq + q^2 = 1
where p is the frequency of one allele and q is the frequency of the other. ...
