    The overall objective is to describe, analyse and model the mechanisms determining spatial and temporal aspects of the abundance, distribution and genetic composition of invertebrates in agricultural environments. Primary goals of the research are to (i) improve forecasting and sampling methodologies for pests, natural enemies and other bioindicator species; (ii) interpret the effects of agricultural practices on biodiversity at the community, species and population levels; and (iii) contribute to the effectiveness and predictability of pest management practices. The following three broad themes, by no means mutually exclusive, encompass virtually all of the component projects. Comments and suggestions about this WEB site are always welcome

    Fundamental Science: Population Genetics of Marine Zooplankton
    The disciplinary roots for the analysis of dispersal across a species' distributional range lie in a central dogma of population ecology: where N is the number of individuals at a given time ( t ) and after some interval ( t+1 B is the number of births, D is the number of deaths, and I and E are the numbers of individuals immigrating and emigrating, respectively. Dispersal is quantified by assessing the immigration and emigration of individuals among conspecific populations. The dispersal of marine zooplankton can be inferred from the population genetic structure of a species by statistical analyses developed by population genetic theory (see Wright ] for a comprehensive treatment). To do this, the frequencies of individual traits are determined for geographic populations of a species, and analyzed by the statistical approaches of population genetics. The use of genetic characters to examine population structure and patterns of gene flow has been an active area of research for many years (see reviews by Avise ] and Wilson et al ]). Genetic approaches may help to resolve long-standing questions about the dispersal of zooplankton in the ocean. Genetic characters have the advantage that they are unambiguous identifiers of an individual or lineage, but a population genetic approach will yield statistical rather than deterministic conclusions about the dynamics of zooplankton populations in the ocean. Population genetics, despite the term, is a study of individual characteristics and cannot be done using groups (or pooled individuals). It is unlikely that it will be possible to predict an individual zooplankton's destination, but it may be possible to determine the proportion of immigrant individuals in a given region on an oceanographically relevant time scale.

    Population genetics
    Word: Word Starts with Ends with Definition Population genetics is the study of the distribution of and change in allele frequencies Allele frequency is a term of population genetics that is used in characterizing the genetic diversity of a species population, or equivalently the richness of its gene pool. Allele frequency is defined as follows: Given a) a particular chromosome locus, b) a gene occupying that locus, c) a population of individuals carrying n loci in each of their somatic cells (e.g. two loci in the cells of diploid species, which contain two sets of chromosomes) and finally d) a variant or allele of the gene, then the allele frequency of that allele is the fraction or percentage of loci that the allele occupies within the population.

Other mechanisms of evolution include genetic drift, gene flow and mutation.

    The Hardy-Weinberg Rule Background

    This tasty activity for high school biology students demonstrates the effects of selective predation on a small population. Predators (students) selectively prey upon (eat) fish (Goldfish crackers) in a small population. Prey are replaced with fish randomly selected from an ocean (a mixing bowl full of Goldfish crackers) to create the next generation. Students calculate genotype frequencies for each generation using the Hardy-Weinberg rule. They then examine their data to see if the genotype frequencies have shifted as a result of selective predation. Students work in lab groups of 3 to 4. As an option, you can have the lab groups pool their results and calculate genotype frequencies for the aggregate data. To review, the Hardy-Weinberg rule for a population at genetic equilibrium assumes the following:

    When a comparison of DNA profiles derived from evidence and reference samples fails to exclude an individual(s) as a contributor(s) of the evidence sample, statistical assessment and/or probabilistic reasoning are used to evaluate the significance of the association. Proper statistical inference requires careful formulation of the question to be answered, including, in this instance, the requirements of the legal system. Inference must take into account how and what data were collected, which, in turn, determine how the data are analyzed and interpreted. Previously, the DNA Advisory Board (DAB; June 21, 1996, New York, New York) endorsed the recommendations of the National Research Council's Report (1996; henceforth NRC II Report): The DAB congratulates Professor Crow and his NRC [National Research Council] Committee for their superb report on the statistical and population genetics issues surrounding forensic DNA profiling. We wholeheartedly endorse the findings of the report in these substantive matters.

    Population genetics (in the strict sense of the word)
    In all calculations and discussions the population (group of animals) is assumed to be a random mating population (every animals has an equal chance of mating any other animal (of the opposite sex of course)). In the world of dogs this is not a realistic situation. On one side the breeder selects a certain combination and on the other side there are geographical limitations (the chances of me using a dog from Australia are considerably less (almost zero) than those of a dog from the Netherlands). In reality the results are however very close to the predictions that assume a random mating population. Always check whether this approximation is sensible in each case!
    Hardy and Weinberg's Law
    These two investigators independently described the relationship between the frequency of certain alleles (allele frequency) and the frequency of certain genotypes in the population. Two properties of the population are required: random mating occurs and the population is large.

    population genetics and Evolution. Introduction The breeding populationis large. ( Reduces the problem of genetic drift.); Mating is random.
    Population Genetics and Evolution Introduction In 1908, G.H.Hardy and W. Weinberg independently suggested a scheme whereby evolution could be viewed as changes in frequency of alleles in a population of organisms. In this scheme, if A and a are alleles for a particular gene locus and each diploid individual has two such loci, then p can be designated as the frequency of the A allele and q as the frequency of the a allele. For example, in a population of 100 individuals ( each with two loci ) in which 40% of the alleles are A, p would be 0.40. The rest of the alleles would be ( 60%) would be a and q would be equal to 0.60. p + q = 1 These are referred to as allele frequencies . The frequency of the possible diploid combinations of these alleles ( AA, Aa, aa ) is expressed as p +2pq +q Hardy and Weinberg also argued that if 5 conditions are met, the population's alleles and genotype frequencies will remain constant from generation to generation. These conditions are as follows:

Advances in technology in the past decadesequencing and genotyping and computing powermean that some of the outstanding mysteries in human genetics are likely to be demystified in the coming years. The questions we are addressing include:
  • What are the patterns of haplotype structure and linkage disequilibrium in the human genome, and how can they be used to find genes that cause disease? How do human history, recombination rate variation, and natural selection combine to produce the observed patterns of variation?
  • How do genetic patterns (haplotypes) differ across populations and how can these be utilized in disease gene mapping?
  • How can human populations that have been isolated or experienced recent bottlenecks or mixture, be used for disease gene mapping? Our group has a strong focus on studying multiple sclerosis in African Americans: trying to find genes that contribute to the disease, and in general developing techniques for mapping in recently mixed populations. Answering these questions will allow human geneticists to focus on their important work: finding the genes that contribute to major human disease.

    The principles of population genetics have important bearing on the practice
    of fisheries science. However, fisheries managers do not typically receive training in population genetics. This is due, in large part, to lack of course materials in population genetics relevant to fisheries science. Few fisheries students go forward with courses focusing on genetics of fruit flies, corn, or humans, and even when they do, the applications of principles to problems they will face in their careers often are unclear. The availability of a textbook for a course in fisheries genetics would make the field of population genetics relevant and accessible to students and practitioners of fisheries science.

    Dictionary Definition of Population genetics

    Population genetics is the study of the distribution of and change in allele frequencies under the influence of the four evolutionary forces: natural selection genetic drift mutation and migration . It also takes account of population subdivision and population structure in space. As such, it is the theory that attempts to explain such phenomena as adaptation and speciation . Population genetics was a vital ingredient in the modern evolutionary synthesis , its primary founders were Sewall Wright J. B. S. Haldane and Ronald Fisher , who also laid the foundations for the related discipline of quantitative genetics . Notable population geneticists of the mid-to-late 20th century include Japanese Mooto Kimura American Richard Lewontin and Italian Luigi Luca Cavalli-Sforza
