complete linkage

complete linkage

Genetics An inheritance pattern for 2 gene loci on the same chromosome, in which the observed crossover frequency between the loci is zero. See Chromosome, Crossing over, Gene, Inheritance, Linkage, Locus, Nonlinkage, Partial linkage.

complete linkage

The location of genes sufficiently closely to each other in a chromosome that they are always transmitted together to daughter cells. In the phenotype, the effects of such genes always occur together in the same individual.

The most distant neighbor method "Complete linkage method", which defines the distance between two clusters by the maximum distance between each item with respect to each formed cluster (Lattin, et al., 2011).
With the application of the complete linkage cluster hierarchical method to classify calving orders using the ADG, W205 and D160 variables of the calves, the cutoff point was obtained at a height of 20%, with this height being defined for representing the best performance behavior of the calves and heifers as a function of the cows' age (Figure 1A) .
One of three linkage criteria must be selected: single linkage, average linkage, and complete linkage. We selected the complete linkage criteria to ensure that the maximum distance between elements of each cluster was under the threshold t.
There is no guarantee that single linkage or complete linkage will individually give the optimal clusters, because they consider only a single distance between two clusters.
The strains were clustered into four groups at 66% similarity level based on UPGMA with complete linkage and squared Euclidean Distance, while they were clustered into two main groups at 33% similarity level.
In this research, agglomerative (i.e., bottom-up) hierarchical clustering in the form of complete linkage clustering was considered.
The results are shown in Figure 8.There was a complete linkage disequilibrium (r2=1) between g.5368G>A and g.5389A>C.
Based on the cophenetic correlations of hierarchical clustering methods presented (Table 1), the method of average linkage provided better grouping, as it presented the highest cophenetic correlation (0.89), which was expected because the method of average distances produced better partitions than the single linkage, complete linkage and Ward's methods.

According to the existing [r.sup.2], 23,797 of the 3,385,800 marker pairs were in complete linkage disequilibrium; 12,225 of these were adjacent pairs.
