The Polymorphism Information Content (PIC) value is often used to measure the informativeness of a genetic marker for linkage studies. The PIC value was first derived for the case of a rare dominant disease, when one of the parents is affected, and is a function of the particular mode of disease inheritance. We first generalize the definition of the PIC value in such a way that it does not depend on the mode of inheritance of the trait being studied, and then develop a Linkage Information… CONTINUE READING
