DNA 03: Power of discrimination
 

Three alleles {A1, A2, A3} at locus A occur with probabilities

p(A1) = 688 / 1200 = 0.573

p(A2) = 110 / 1200 = 0.092

p(A3) = 402 / 1200 = 0.335

  1. Calculate the probability that two random unrelated individuals will have a match at this locus assuming HW equilibrium.

  2. Hence calculate the power of discrimination for this locus.
