On mixtures of three normal populations caused by monogenic inheritance: application to desipramine metabolism.


For a mixture of three normal distributions, which represent genotypes AA, Aa and aa, a method of estimation of the seven unknown parameters is proposed which works well whenever the phenotype (aa) is sufficiently well separated from the phenotype (AA, Aa). It is based on p-values of Kolmogorov's test of goodness of fit to normality. Initial parameter… (More)
