- What pattern of heterozygosity and homozygosity results from inbreeding?
- Is it exactly the same in each run of this exercise?
- How can the heterozygosity and homozygosity in each generation be described?
- Hint: what is F?
- What is the value of F when the population is in H-W proportions?

- Calculate F for each generation
- Graph F over at least 10 generations.

- This exercise starts with 100 individuals and continues with 100
individuals in each generation. (50 pairs of full sibs.) What would be
different if:
- There were a different number at the start?

e.g. 50, or 500? - There were a different number of offspring per parent?

e.g. 2, or 1/2 (on the average)

- There were a different number at the start?
- Can you characterize variation within vs. between lines?
