Description:

The Hardy-Weinberg formula can be used to calculate a gene's frequency based on phenotype information. An allele refers to one of the alternative forms for a gene that may occupy a single locus on homologous chromosomes. An allele's frequency (calculated from phenotype frequencies) is its proportion of the total allelic pool. The sum of allele frequencies at a given locus must equal 1.00.
