MCAT Basics Podcast

Population Genetics

This MCAT podcast covers population genetics. I discuss genotypes and phenotypes, inheritance patterns, and the Hardy-Weinberg equation. In addition, I talk about the four ways that a population’s genetics can change over time i.e. natural selection, mutation, genetic drift and gene flow.

  • [01:09] The Difference Between Population Genetics and Molecular Genetics
  • [01:54] Defining Genotypes and Phenotypes
  • [06:24] The Six Inheritance Patterns
  • [13:27] The Hardy-Weinberg Equation
  • [26:17] Natural Selection
  • [32:22] Mutation
  • [36:47] Genetic Drift
  • [40:04] Gene Flow

Please email me if you have any comments or concerns: [email protected]
