A first step towards the genetic dissection of quantitative traits is to perform a genome scan with DNA markers evenly spaced throughout the genome. However, and despite recent advancements in typing technology, a dense genome scan remains a lengthy and very expensive task. An alternative approach is to perform a preliminary typing with a reduced number of markers, not necessarily covering all chromosomes, in order to assess the fraction of total genetic variation explained by typed markers and… CONTINUE READING
