Cystics Fibrosis is not a pleasant disease, yet it still has a high prevalence in the caucasian population. Why? Heterozygous individuals show resistance to typhoid. Is it so wise to use genetic engineering to eradicate diseases? Sure we could correct the gene in those poor homozygous sufferers, but...

Seeing as this thread is going nowhere, I'll just ask - how did you get away with such a short reply MrMistery??

Everytime I try it I get a dialogue box that tells me off. Sometimes I just want to write "NO.". It's such a spoiler...

Well yes we are certainly adverse to doing people's homework for them, but keep it reasonable and there should be no problem. The second question you posted is exactly the same as the first except both populations are affected - can you see that? The wording of that question about diversity between ...

The selective force is removing yellow eyes from population A, so it is decreasing the diversity in it.

There is no mention of any breeding between the two populations so the last part simply cannot be answered.

Hmm yes, I suppose it would be something based around 'chelonia' wouldn't it? Chelonidist perhaps? Good word anyway to be fair.

One of the biggest arguments at University I ever saw was between a muslim girl and a particularly ignorant older lady.
