hi everyone

I need to understand Minor allele frequency

a SNP with a allele (G) frequency of 0.40 implies that 40% of a population has G allele versus the most common allele (major allele), which is found in 60% of the population.

if a SNP allele frequency is 0.05 how will be calculate its percentage in the population

please explain with calculation

The statement "which is found in 60% of the population" is incorrect, and should be corrected. It would be more correct to say "makes up 60% of the alleles in the population"
