Increased LD is the result of new mutations, population structure, autogamy, genetic isolation, admixture, genetic drift, small founder population size, epistasis, genomic rearrangement, selection and kinship, whereas higher rates of recombination and mutation, recurrent mutations, gene conversion and outcrossing significantly decrease LD (Gupta et al.
