Figure 4. a. Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium analysis of the increase in resistance gene frequency in a parasite population where the initial R gene frequency is 10-6, heterozygotes and R gene homozygotes are fully resistant, and 75% of susceptible worms are lost to treatment each generation. b. As in a, but 40% of heterozygotes are lost to treatment each generation. c. As in a, but 99% of resistant homozygotes do not survive to reproduce.
