Linkage disequilibrium data

Answer: 

This view displays detailed information about linkage disequilibrium (LD) that measures the correlation between two alleles (neighbouring genetic variations) in a specific population.Two values have been calculated:

  • r2
  • D'

Note that only LDs with r2 values larger than 0.05 are available.

The display is centred in the genomic position given by the SNP, and shows all LD values that are contained in the region.

LD values between two variants are graphically displayed using inverted coloured triangles going from white (low LD) to red (high LD). Clicking on the inverted triangle, it is possible to view the value between the two variants.

To export a table of these values, click on the Export data tool button at the left of the view.
