Mining Genomes

Population Genetics: Analyses and Simulations In this exercise, you will analyze real molecular data, primarily generated by high-school and college students, to learn how allele frequencies and genotype distributions can be used to study human populations. To do so, you will use the databases and statistical tools at the Dolan DNA Learning Center of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. In addition, you will use simulations to explore how factors such as population size, selection pressure, and genetic drift interact to cause allele frequencies to change.
