Abstract

Algebraic expressions for the average exclusion frequency and the paternity index are derived for two linked loci, each with two alleles segregating in a population. The effects of recombination and gametic disequilibrium on these two statistics are discussed. As long as recombination is known to exist, the average exclusion frequency is similar for different recombination fractions. The paternity index, on the other hand, depends very much on both the recombination fraction and gametic disequilibrium. The effects of multiple alleles and dominance on these statistics are also briefly discussed.
