  1. Suppose the frequencies for alleles 11 and 12 (at Marker 1) are 0.2 and 0.3, and the frequency of allele 6 at Marker 2 is 0.1.

    • Under Hardy-Weinberg and the product rule, what is the probability of an individual being 11,12 and 6,6

    • Now use NRC recommendation 4.1, and assume theta = 0.05. What is this match probability?

    • Now use NRC recommendation 4.2 also with theta = 0.05. What is this match probability (use Eq. 4.10 in the notes)
