Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The wing color of a certain species of moth is controlled by alleles at a single locus. Gray (G) is dominant to white (g). A scientist studied a large population of these moths, tracking the frequency of the G allele over time, as shown in the figure below.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think the answer is C by the way.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the wiki defines it as: allele and genotype frequencies in a population will remain constant from generation to generation in the absence of other evolutionary influences.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that simply means that the ratio remains consistent .... how to apply that i dont know yet, need to scour the google some more

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, i see the p+q=1 in that f(AA) = p^2 f(aa) = q^2 f(Aa) = 2pq which are the terms of the expansion of: (p+q)^2 = 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Gg is a geno type? G and g are alleles? or how do we define those words?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes that is how we define it in my class as well.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0im trying to determine how we go from a frequency an allele of G, to determining a genotype of (gg)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So would my answer be correct?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i cannot verify your answer, i simply do not have enough experience with this stuff to confirm or deny it. it 'seems' like a good answer; but can you back up its reasoning? even then, i cant verify it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i wonder \[(G+g)^2=1\] \[GG+2Gg+\underbrace{gg}_{\text{solution ?}}=1\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if G is between .4 and .5 g is between .5 and .6 gg, or g^2, is between .25 and .36 but of course both of those extremes are solution options, and i dont see an option between them so this idea might not hold any value
