Statistical Genetics and Evolution of Quantitative Traits
by Richard A. Neher, Boris I. Shraiman
Publisher: arXiv 2011
Number of pages: 23
This review provides a simplified exposition of the concept and mathematics of Quasi-Linkage Equilibrium (QLE) which is central to the statistical description of genotypes in sexual populations. We show how key results of Quantitative Genetics such as the generalized Fisher's Fundamental Theorem, along with Wright's Adaptive Landscape, emerge within QLE from the dynamics of the genotype distribution.
