Session 7

In session 7, we used the alleles G for Green skin, r for Red skin, and y for yellow skin. We used the legos to complete a Natural Selection worksheet. The legos represented alleles. For the Generation 1-4, we recorded the number and percentage of frogs with each phenotype. We also recorded the gene frequency of each allele (gene frequency is the number of times that the individual allele occurs.
