Homework Help: Genetic Diversity in squirrels

  1. Sep 11, 2008 #1
    Some genetics homework I have on squirrels..

    1) Percentage of polymorphic loci within taxon (%P)

    2) Average number of alleles per loci

    3) For each locus within each taxon, calculate allele frequency of each allele at each locus.

    4) Heterozygosity at each locus for each taxon.

    5) Average heterozygosity per taxon.

    For 2, I know the average number of alleles per loci is 3 Tf A,B, and C, but that's about all I know.

    If someone could help me get started on this one It would be greatly appreciated, because I have 10 more loci to do. Once I get started on one I would be able to finish the rest of them.
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
