    The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    The frequency of PKU in european populations is about 1/10000. What is the frequency of the allele for PKU?

    The attempt at a solution

    I know PKU is an autosomal recessive disorder so does that mean q^2=1/10000? I'm not quite sure where to go from here :bugeye:
