Statistical methods aimed at the detection of genes for quantitative traits suffer from two problems: (i) when a linkage approach is employed, relatively large sample sizes are usually required; and (ii) when an association approach is employed, effects of population stratification may blur genuine locus-trait associations. The variance components method proposed by Fulker et al. (1999) addressed both these problems; it is statistically powerful because it involves a combined analysis of… CONTINUE READING
