Linkage Equilibrium - Simulation

Adjust the initial allelic frequencies and the two-locus fitness values to the right:

For best results, begin by setting the fitness values to 1.0, and initial allelic frequencies to 0.5. Then, decrease one or more of the fitness values by a small amount.

Both the observed and expected genotype frequencies are presented above the graph.

The two loci may be in linkage equilibrium or disequilibrium, depending on the fitness values chosen. During the simulation the current state is displayed above the graph.

The population represented to the right consists of 5000 randomly mating individuals.
