If these loci are at linkage equilibrium
(DL = 0 and LE = 1), i.
In population genetics, linkage equilibrium
and linkage disequilibrium describe linkage of alleles at different loci.
The test of linkage equilibrium
revealed no significant values.
This program also computes the linkage equilibrium
between each pair of loci based on a likelihood-ratio test (Slatkin and Excoffier 1996).
After correcting allele frequencies for putative null alleles, a significant deviation from linkage equilibrium
was detected with GENEPOP for only one pair of loci: Med 362 / Med 722 (P < 0.
We recently demonstrated linkage equilibrium
between tightly linked molecular markers and the Ms locus in open-pollinated populations of onion (Gokce and Havey, 2002).
1, thus the condition favors linkage equilibrium
and the central limit theorem.
These formulas, however, assume linkage equilibrium
and Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium.
If all the loci are in linkage equilibrium
, then the frequencies of combinations of alleles are products of allele frequencies, and
2] testcrossed to H93 x B99, if either of two conditions was met (Melchinger, 1988): (i) epistasis was absent; or (ii) epistasis was present but the parental populations were in linkage equilibrium
Bazykin (1973) provides the conditions for the existence of a migration-selection balance using a two-locus model of stabilizing selection with equal migration rates under the assumption of linkage equilibrium
