Joint mapping for multiple quantitative traits has shed new light on genetic mapping by pinpointing pleiotropic effects and close linkage. Joint mapping also can improve statistical power of QTL detection. However, such a joint mapping procedure has not been available for discrete traits. Most disease resistance traits are measured as one or more discrete characters. These discrete characters are often correlated. Joint mapping for multiple binary disease traits may provide an opportunity to… CONTINUE READING
