Change of the proportion of the epigenetic variance over the total genetic variance (Re2) as a function of Hardy-Weinberg disequilibrium (HED) coefficients formed between the original allele and epiallele in a natural population after DNA methylation. The total and epigenetic genetic variances are calculated by assuming population genetic parameters (p, q, u, D1e, D2e, D12) ≡ (0.4, 0.6, u, D1e, D2e, 0) (allowing u, D1e, and D2e to change) and quantitative genetic parameters (a1, ae, d1e, d2e, d12) ≡ (0.4, 0.05, 0.05, 0.05, 0.05).
