This Youreka Science video provides an overview of allele and genotype frequency, and explores the criteria that make a population be in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium. https://www.ibiology.org/evolution/hardy-weinberg-equilibrium/ Talk Overview: Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium combines the concepts of Darwinian evolution and Mendelian genetics to explain and study population genetics.  This Youreka Science video provides an overview of allele and genotype frequency, and explores the criteria that make a population be in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium. This video will help you understand how to use Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium to solve population genetic problems. About Youreka Science: Youreka Science was created by Florie Mar, PhD, while she was a cancer researcher at UCSF. While teaching 5th graders about the structure of a cell, Mar realized the importance of incorporating scientific findings into classroom in an easy-to-understand way. From that she started creating whiteboard drawings that explained recent papers in the scientific literature to the general public. Mar has created over thirty videos about the latest scientific experiments and is now joined by Alex Olson to produce more fun and engaging videos. Learn more at http://yourekascience.org/
