Harvey-Weinberg

There are at least seven assumptions in this idealized model. The one that most concerns me is that the gene being studied is not under selective pressure.

You are studying a gene not under selective pressure. Why? Of what great importance is that? Important, possibly; of great importance, no.

The most important genes cannot be in Harvey-Weinberg equilibrium for long.
