A scan for linkage disequilibrium across the human genome

Huttley, Gavin Austin; Smith, M; Carrington, M; O'Brien, Patricia C M

Description

Linkage disequilibrium (LD), the tendency for alleles of linked loci to co-occur nonrandomly on chromosomal haplotypes, is an increasingly useful phenomenon for (1) revealing historic perturbation of populations including founder effects, admixture, or incomplete selective sweeps; (2) estimating elapsed time since such events based on time-dependent decay of LD; and (3) disease and phenotype mapping, particularly for traits not amenable to traditional pedigree analysis. Because few descriptions...[Show more]
