Calculating Allele and Genotype Frequencies From Observed Data


In red squirrels, the allele for bushy tail (T) is completely dominant to the allele for smooth tail (t). The following phenotypes are observed in a population:

324 Bushy
121 Smooth

From the observed data provided, what is the only genotype frequency you can accurately calculate?
