Linkage Disequilibrium

Science / Genetics / Linkage Disequilibrium: Where alleles occur together more often than can be accounted for by chance. Indicates that the two alleles are physically close on the dna strand.

Sex Linkage

Science / Biology / Sex Linkage: The condition in which the inheritance of a sex chromosome is coupled with that of a given gene; e.g., red-green color blindness and hemophilia in humans. Traits located on the X-chromosome. MORE

Linkage Map

Science / Genetics / Linkage Map: A map of the relative positions of genetic loci on a chromosome, determined on the basis of how often the loci are inherited together. Distance is measured in centimorgans (cm). MORE

Linkage Disequilibrium

Science / Genetics / Linkage Disequilibrium: Where alleles occur together more often than can be accounted for by chance. Indicates that the two alleles are physically close on the dna strand. MORE

Linkage

Science / Biology / Linkage: The condition in which the inheritance of a specific chromosome is coupled with that of a given gene. The genes stay together during meiosis and end up in the same gamete. MORE

Genetic Linkage Map

Science / Genetics / Genetic Linkage Map: A chromosome map showing the relative positions of the known genes on the chromosomes of a given species. MORE
