This study investigated the extent of linkage disequilibrium (LD) in two genomic regions (on chromosomes 4 and 7) in five populations of domesticated pigs. LD was measured with D' and tested for significance with the Fisher exact test. Effects of genetic (linkage) distance, chromosome, population, and their interactions on D' were tested both through a linear model analysis of covariance and by a theoretical nonlinear model. The overall result was that (1) the distance explained most of the… CONTINUE READING
