Mouse Chromosome 14 with markers arrayed along the diagonal from centromere (lower left) to telomere (upper right). Typical domains oflinkage disequilibrium arising from selection of coadapted sets of allelesat genomically clustered, functionally related genes show as regions of warmcolor surrounded by white boxes. Similar domains occur on all chromosomes see Petkov et al.).
