where: p2 = frequency of homozygous dominant (NAA/N)
2pq = frequency of heterozygous (NAa/N)
q2 = frequency of homozygous recessive (Naa/N)
p = frequency of dominant allele
q = frequency of recessive allele
Given: after the mutation event
NAA = 9 NAa = 1 N = 10
Calculate the allele frequencies in the iguana population following the mutation event.
A. 0.9 GG, 0.1 Gg
B. 9 GG, 1 Gg, 0 gg
C. 0.95 G, 0.05 g
D. 0.9 G, 0.1 g
E. 1.0 G, 0.0 g
