On the utility of linkage disequilibrium as a statistic for identifying targets of positive selection in nonequilibrium populations

Genetics

Jun 15, 2007

Jeffrey D JensenCharles F Aquadro

Abstract

A critically important challenge in empirical population genetics is distinguishing neutral nonequilibrium processes from selective forces that produce similar patterns of variation. We here examine the extent to which linkage disequilibrium (i.e., nonrandom associations between markers...read more
