An isolated population is a group of individuals who are descended from a founding population who lived some time ago. If the founding individuals are assumed to be noninbred and unrelated, a chromosome sampled from the population can be represented as a mosaic of segments of the original ancestral types. A population in which chromosomes are made up of a few long segments will exhibit linkage disequilibrium due to founder effect over longer distances than a population in which the chromosomes… CONTINUE READING
