5 HW Assumptions

Large population
Random matings
No mut
Individuals equally capable of mating/passing on genes
No migration

2

2 Kinds of Nonrandom Mating in Humans

Assortative Mating - select ptypically similar partners (deaf and deaf)
Cosanguinity

3

Coefficient of Inbreeding

Proportion of alleles for which an individual is homozygous by descent

4

Genetic Drift (2)

When allele frequencies fluctuate b/w generations just by chance (usually in smaller pops)
Founder effect is one kind

5

Gene Flow

Slow diffusion of genes across a barrier, migrating pops cause a change in allele freqs
