Linkage equilibrium

(Science: genetics) situation that should exist in a population undisturbed by selection, migration, etc., in which all possible combinations of linked genes should be present at equal frequency. The situation is no more common than are such undisturbed populations.

Re:

... other question if we prove that a loci or a gene is in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium HWE, does this mean that this gene cannot be used as a genetic marker or there is no hope for this Loci to be in Linkage-disequilibrium with any other gene Maybe the gene can be in a linkage.. ...
