For their study, Robert Moyzis along with colleagues from the University of California, searched for instances of linkage disequilibrium
in a collection of 1.6 million SNPs scattered across all the human chromosomes. Then, they looked carefully at the instances to distinguish the conseq...

To tease out the origins of disease-causing genes, researchers use a technique called mapping by admixture linkage disequilibrium
(MALD), a powerful approach to identify regions of the genome that have genes associated with disease. It takes advantage of differences in disease p...
