A geneticist is studying two genes. Each gege can be either dominant or recessive. A sample of 100 individuals is categorized as follows;

                                       Gene2

Gene 1               Dominant         Recessive  

Dominant            56                   24

Recessive              14                    6

Given that gene 1 is dominant, what is the probability gene 2 is dominant?

Two genes are said to be in linkage equilibrium if the event that gene1 is dominant is independent of the event gene 2 is dominant. Are these genes in linkage equilibrium? you must show why or why not
