SUMMARY Polylink runs under Microsoft Windows (95 or later). It performs various calculations that are useful for investigating two-point linkage analysis for autopolyploids, based on the random chromosome pairing model. These include calculation of offspring phenotypic probabilities as functions of the recombination fraction, calculation of theoretical standard errors for the maximum likelihood estimator of and numerical computation of maximum likelihood estimates. It also includes simulation… CONTINUE READING
