Allele and Genotype Frequencies Altered by Selection


Assume that two alleles (A1 and A2) are segregating in a diploid, sexually reproducing population with frequencies of 0.59 and 0.41, respectively.

What would be the expected genotype frequencies and allele frequencies in the subsequent progeny generation if female parents were selected at random from the general population, but only A2A2 individuals were allowed to be male parents?
