r) What is Linkage Disequilibrium (LD or D)? The associa+on of alleles at diﬀerent loci more frequently or less frequently than expected based on their frequencies. **Coeﬃcient of Linkage Disequilibrium for 2 alleles at each of 2 loci: D = f(A1B1) x f(A2B2) – f(A2B1) x f(A1B2) This equals zero when alleles are randomly associated and is non
zero when alleles are LINKED (can be nega+ve). D = [pr x (1

r)]
[p(1
