What is a Mendelian population? How is the gene pool of a Mendelian population usually described? What are the predictions given by the Hardy-Weinberg law? What assumptions must be met for a population to be in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium?

What is random mating?

Give the Hardy-Weinberg expected genotypic frequencies for (a) an autosomal locus with three alleles, and (b) an X-linked locus with two alleles.

Define inbreeding and briefly describe its effects on a population.

6. What determines the allelic frequencies at mutational equilibrium?

* 7. What factors affect the magnitude of change in allelic frequencies due to migration?

Define genetic drift and give three ways that it can arise. What effect does genetic drift have on a population?

What is effective population size? How does it affect the amount of genetic drift?
