The incidence of a specific type of gene in a population.  Edit

How to calculate itEdit

The allele frequency is calculated by dividing the number of times the type of gene is observed in a population by the total number of genes for the type you are looking at.  Edit

What is it used for?Edit

The changes in an allele frequency are used as evidence of evolution or genetic change within a population.  It is also a key component of the hardy wienberg model.  Edit
