In a human population of 1000 people at a blood locus there are two alleles M and N. The observed genotype frequencies at this locus are f(MM) = 0.26, f(MN) = 0.35, and f(NN) = 0.39.
a. What is the frequency of each allele in this population? Do not assume Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium.
b. Based on the answer above find out the expected frequencies of all genotypes at this locus assuming HW equilibrium.
Is the population in HW equilibrium? describe your answer by doing a statistical analysis.
Give three criteria that must be fulfilled by a population, before it can be assumed it is in HW equilibrium? describe why for each.
