Introduction for students
This exercise illustrates the phenomenon of sampling error, which is the
mechanism whereby genetic drift changes allele frequencies in populations.
In this example a haploid model is used for simplicity. This exercise is
designed to accompany an in-class discussion of genetic drift.
