Finding the sources of missing heritability in a yeast cross

Abstract

For many traits, including susceptibility to common diseases in humans, causal loci uncovered by genetic-mapping studies explain only a minority of the heritable contribution to trait variation. Multiple explanations for this ‘missing heritability’ have been proposed. Here we use a large cross between two yeast strains to accurately estimate different… (More)
