In the Year 2525… Using Real Time PCR Data to Analyze a Founder Scenario

This activity will place the concepts of Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium into a contemporary context.  During the activity students will interpret data from real-time PCR and use it to calculate allele frequencies.  These allele frequencies will then serve as a hypothetical founder population, for which students will run simulations using Allele A1 software to predict possible future allele frequen Read more about In the Year 2525… Using Real Time PCR Data to Analyze a Founder Scenario
