Independent Segregation 

 

 

 

Mendel says that if loci are far apart they will segregate independently, however if they are close together they can segregate together more than 50% of the time.

How many SNPs differences in people per chromosome

 

 

 

40,000 differences between people per chromosome.

In genetics, a haplotype is:

 

A single genetic polymorphism

A combination of Polymorphisms

A DNA polymorphism that results in a polymorphic protein

A polymorphism seen only in somatic cells

 

 

 

A combination of Polymorphisms

Usefulness of Haplotypes

 

 

 

Haplotype is a very useful way of making a statistically significant association between the group of polymorphisms and disease.

Recombination and Uninformative Markers

Most important slide in gene mapping. 

A locus has multiple alleles. Top 3 are different haplotypes. Then a mutation occurred in D locus. 

Middle Haplotype is a marker for the disease because the mutation arose on that hyplotypic background but you don’t know where the mutation is specifically.

You just know that people with this disease have this A2B2C4D4 haplotype so you can narrow down where the mutation can occur. 

After recombination the mutated locus has recombined with a different marker/haplotype. So now someone with a different than normal haplotype can also have the disease.
