The time turns out ripe for a serious compendum of that section of the organic universe we name viruses. Virology, as a technological know-how, having handed only in the near past via its descriptive section of naming and numbering, has most likely reached that level at which particularly few new-truly new-viruses should be came upon.

G. 552). The information is usually reported in the form of allele frequencies, rather than genotype frequencies. We use the letters p and q to represent the relative frequencies for the two alleles at the locus. The frequency of the F allele (p) is simply the proportion of all alleles examined which are F. Note that we double the number of each homozygote, and the total, as the ducks are diploid (each bird has inherited one copy of the locus from each of its parents). 1 shows that 73% of the alleles at this locus are the F allele and 27% are S.

1 Relationship between genotype frequencies and allele frequencies in a population in Hardy–Weinberg equilibrium. 4. Values of p and q, calculated previously, are used to calculate p2 , 2pq and q2 . These frequencies are then multiplied by the total number (67) to obtain expected numbers for the three genotypes. The observed numbers for each genotype are very close to the numbers expected from the Hardy--Weinberg equilibrium. In general, agreement with expectations is found for most loci in large naturally outbreeding populations (more or less random mating).

After separation the fragments are detected by either (1) staining gels with ethidium bromide (a DNA stain), (2) use of radioactively labelled primers and autoradiography of gels, or (3) use of fluorescently labelled primers and running the PCR products on a DNA sequencing machine. If an individual is heterozygous for two microsatellite alleles with different numbers of repeats, then two different-sized bands will be detected, as shown above. Microsatellites typically measure genetic variation for loci that are neutral (not exposed to selection) since the tandem repeats are usually located in non-coding segments of the DNA.
