Study of Various Human Traits in accordance to Hardy-Weinberg's Law in Jammu, India

Abstract: Allele frequencies remain constant when transmitted over generations if there is random mating, no genetic drift, mutations, etc. as per Hardy-Weinbergs Law. If the gene frequencies are p and q, the genotype frequency will be p2, 2pq, q2 respectively for the dominant, the heterozygotes and the recessive in a two allele system. In this present study total of 16 autosomally genetically transmitted morphological characters were taken into account to find out whether their distribution and transmission followed Hardy Weinbergs law or not.743 samples including males and females in the age group 6 to 75 were analysed from Jammu, India. When there is higher degree of deviation than expected on application of chi square test it ascertains that certain forces like natural selection, genetic drift, non-random mating etc. have a more profound effect on the distribution of genetically transmitted autosomal characters. It was observed that in the region of Jammu 9 characters showed higher degree of deviation than expected.
