Inheritance Patterns in a Population

Can population genetic patterns be predicted with any accuracy?

Inquiry Question


  • Investigate the use of technologies to determine inheritance patterns in a population using, for example:
    • DNA sequencing and profiling
  • Investigate the use of data analysis from a large-scale collaborative project to identify trends, patterns and relationships, for example:
    • The use of population genetics data in conservation management
    • Population genetics studies used to determine the inheritance of a disease or disorder
    • Population genetics relating to human evolution
