Abstract

Simulation experiments were performed to assess the power of the lod method for detecting linkage between a quantitative trait and a qualitative marker. Using family data on the Amy2-Duffy linkage, it was found that linkage detection is feasible in certain limited circumstances. The same qualitative data yielded no evidence for a significant difference in male and female recombination fractions.
