Scientific Skills Questions One way to test whether evolution is occurring in a population is to compare the observed genotype frequencies at a locus with those expected for a nonevolving population

based on the Hardy-Weinberg equation. In this exercise, youll test whether a soybean population is evolving at a locus with two alleles, CG and CY , that affect chlorophyll production and hence leaf color. Students planted soybean seeds and then counted the number of seedlings of each genotype at day 7 and again at day 21. Seedlings of each genotype could be distinguished visually because the CG and CY alleles show incomplete dominance: CGCG seedlings have green leaves, CGCY seedlings have green-yellow leaves, and CYCY seedlings have yellow leaves. 2014 Pearson Education, Inc.

Using the day 7 data, what is the frequency of the CG allele (p)? a) p (2 49) (1 111) (0 56)/432 b) p (2 49) (1 111) (0 56)/216 c) p (2 23) (1 51) (0 26)/216 d) p (2 23) (1 51) (0 26)/432 2014 Pearson Education, Inc.

2014 Pearson Education, Inc. Homozygous CYCY individuals cannot produce chlorophyll. The ability to photosynthesize becomes more critical as seedlings age and begin to exhaust the supply of food that was stored in the seed from which they emerged. What hypothesis could explain the data for days 7 and 21? a) At day 7, CYCY individuals were not being selected against because they were using chlorophyll inherited from the mother plant; by day 21, they had run out of chlorophyll and many plants were not surviving. b) Some external factor caused a disproportionate number of deaths among the CYCY seedlings. If the experiment were repeated, the researchers would obtain a different result.

c) At day 7, CYCY individuals were not being selected against because they had plenty of water; by day 21, they had run out of water and many plants were not surviving. d) At day 7, CYCY individuals were not being selected against because they had not used up the supply of food that was stored in the seed; by day 21, they had run out of stored food and many plants were not surviving. 2014 Pearson Education, Inc.
