What can be learnt about selection from gene frequency distribution?

Abstract

Polymorphism has been studied at the Esterase 6 locus in the Yellow Fever mosquito Aedes aegypti (L.) in laboratory stocks. At least 12 alleles are present, with up to four coexisting in a stock. The allele frequency distribution is quite sharply peaked at a mode of about 0.25. The experimental data are compared with the results of simulation based on two… (More)
