- The frequencies of genotypes at a locus resulting from random mating at that locus; for two alleles, A1 and A2, with respective frequencies in a population of p and q, the Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium frequencies are p2 A1A1; 2pq A1A2; q2 A2A2. Departure from these frequencies is an indication that random mating is not occurring.
