Linkage disequilibrium in highly selfing organisms is expected to extend well beyond the scale of individual genes. The pattern of polymorphism in such species must thus be studied over a larger scale. We sequenced 14 short (0.5-1 kb) fragments from a 400-kb region surrounding the flowering time locus FRI in a sample of 20 accessions of Arabidopsis thaliana. The distribution of allele frequencies, as quantified by Tajima's D, varies considerably over the region and is incompatible with a… CONTINUE READING
