INHERITANCE AND LINKAGE DISEQUILIBRIUM

This module discuss how we inherit recombined chromosomes from our parents. We discuss how the probability of recombination occurring between two variants increases as the variants become more distance. We introduce the concept of linkage disequilibrium and the terms no LD, perfect LD and linked. We show why linkage between variants generally decreases with time.
