The Problem of the Limitations of the Educational Model Experiment on Population Genetics and Its Solution

Elena Komarova, Arnold Kiv

Abstract

The difficulty of conducting an educational model experiment on population genetics is in meeting the requirements of mass and replication. The evolution of a model experiment to study the Hardy-Weinberg law according to the methods proposed by the authors is considered -- from the use of material models and manual counting of alleles and genotypes to the transition to automatic random distribution of elements of the genotypic structure of the population and automatic calculation of the resulting indicators. The technique of fully automated modeling of the genetic structure of the population allows to increase the size of the model sample by orders of magnitude. When using the technique in group work of students, it becomes possible to demonstrate the essence and differences of technical and biological replication as requirements for organizing a biological experiment. The technique is currently developed to work only with very large ideal populations.
