High resolution mapping of quantitative trait loci by linkage disequilibrium analysis


Two methods, linkage analysis and linkage disequilibrium (LD) mapping or association study, are usually utilised for mapping quantitative trait loci (QTL). Linkage mapping is appropriate for low resolution mapping to localise trait loci to broad chromosome regions within a few cM (<10 cM), and is based on family data. Linkage disequilibrium mapping, on the… (More)
