Epistatic selection in a multi-locus Levene model and implications for linkage disequilibrium.

Abstract

We analyze a multiple-locus extension of the Levene (1953) model of population subdivision. We show that stable or quasistable linkage disequilibrium between two selected loci can be maintained even with free recombination, provided that there is a strong enough epistatic interaction. We then consider the dynamics of a third neutral locus and show that its… (More)
