Suppose you sample a population of cockroaches and find that 16% are heterozygous at a particular locus. What would be the frequency of the dominant allele in the population?

Answer

16%

44%

60%

Cannot be determined from the information provided.

How do you work this out? Can you use the HWE equation with just the heterozygous figures?

Thanks!
