Calculations

Post by pinkypig » Tue Jan 29, 2008 9:05 pm

Hi I’m doing some work for my university lecture but i'm really confused with the following question:

Calculate the frequencies of the AA, Aa and aa, genotypes after one generation if the initial population consists of:
0.2AA, 0.6Aa and 0.2aa genotypes.
What frequencies will occur after a second generation?

Hope someone can help!

Thanks
