sickle cell disease - Homework, please help me understand!

Post by Cindani » Tue Oct 26, 2010 8:51 pm

I have to hold a talk about this topic. Can you explain it to me?

How can the distribution of sickle cell disease be explained by taking into account evolutionary factors?

key words: Sickle cell disease and its main symptoms, sickle cell trait, allele, point mutation, hemoglobin S, low oxygen, red blood cells sickle, natural selection, polymorphism, heterozygous advantage and distribution of disease (in connection to malaria and parasite plasmodium)

I could find information on all that you want from reputable sources just by pasting your entire list of keywords in google. maybe you could start by doing a bit of your own research. And if you still have problems come here and ask pointed questions. This is not the place to have your homework done by someone else.
