Are alleles A and B advantageous or deleterious? 2. Assuming the population size changes to 10, which evolutionary process is more likely to be important to the evolution of A and B: selection or genetic drift? Explain using maths to justify your answer (Hint: calculate Ns for each allele. We do not expect any exact probabilities just qualitative answers. Sometimes you will see N written as N; they are the same.) 3. What if the population size suddenly changed to 1000? 4. Which selection coefficient and population size combination described above is most likely to result in an allele reaching 100% frequency in the population? ** A short/medium length response would be great, thank you ** • Show less
