For the current study, the sample content (75) reached the sampling requirement, which indicated that the genetic disequilibrium should not be attributed to the samples but to the excessive artificial selection or inbreeding and other factors of the Chinese Yellow Quail groups.

19]-kDa fragment (45); this is a major reason to consider msp-1 block-2 (and loci in genetic disequilibrium with msp-1 block-2) specifically rather than as only a marker for overall MOI.
Genetic disequilibrium found in the present study showed that the selection could be effective for BB genotype in Holstein, but not EAR cattle.
Genetic disequilibrium may either increase or decrease genetic structuring within versus among subpopulations, depending on founder conditions.
It is unlikely, however, that the antagonism between fitness components observed in the present case was the result of genetic disequilibrium.
