Allele Frequency

This is a measurement that determines how frequent the allele expression of a particular gene arises in a population. The result should be in close correlation with the laws of natural selection, where more favourable alleles should become dominant in a species over time, or are present due to a niche environment where a particular allele would prove advantageous.
