x linked diseases caused by dynamic mutations, such as fragile x


what does haldane's rule explain?

why not all mothers of x-linked recessive disorder sons are carriers themselves


classic example?

DMD where fitness = 0


the proportion of new mutations amoung affected males will be...

1/3, and only 2/3 of the mothers will be carriers

only applies if ftiness is low (0)

u must equal v, aka, female and male mutaton rate must be the same
