  • Observed and expected genotypic frequencies and their differences (disequilibria) at two diallelic loci, UMC107 (designated as locus A) and BV302 (designated as locus B), in the BC3F2 population (Teosinte-M1L × Teosinte-M3L) derived from an original cross of Reventador maize × parviglumis teosinte as described by Doebley et al. (1995) and Kao and Zeng (2002) are shown. The expected values are derived under Cockerham's reference population (CRP) and the F2 population. Chi-square tests are carried out to determine the presence of Hardy-Weinberg disequilibria (HWD) at individual loci and zygotic associations (ZA) between the two loci. Sample size is n = 161.
