may also encourage the expansion of individuals with dependent traits.
... 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 ...
