What is gene frequency? What are the circumstances under which it is likely to take place?
Asked by Sayoni Maiti | 26 Dec, 2013, 10:48: PM
Expert Answer
The frequency of occurrence of an allele in relation to that of other alleles of the same gene in a population is called gene frequency.
 
Copies of alleles can be lost because they never make it into gametes.

If the allele copy makes into a sperm, that sperm isn't the one that fertilizes an egg. Maybe the organism that carries copies of the allele in its gametes fails to find a mate, or is killed before reproducing.
These kinds of events can influence the frequency of that alelle in a population.
