Use of Score Statistics for Model Selection in Mapping Multiple Quantitative Trait Loci

Abstract

One of the major issues in mapping multiple quantitative trait loci is that of model selection. Many methods for mapping QTL scan positions across the genome and test for statistical significance to decide whether to admit QTL in the model. A common problem with these methods is the determination of a genome-wide threshold value for the test statistic… (More)
