Gene Locater – Genetic Linkage Analysis software using Three-point Testcross

Gene Locater

:: DESCRIPTION

GENE LOCATER is a fully customizable program for calculating recombination frequency, written in JAVA. Through an easy-to-use interface, GENE LOCATOR allows users a high degree of flexibility in calculating genetic linkage and displaying linkage group. Among other features, this software enables user to identify linkage groups with output visualized graphically.

MapMaker 3 – Genetic Linkage Analysis & Mapping Genes Complex Traits

MapMaker 3

:: DESCRIPTION

MapMaker is a package containing a program for genetic linkage analysis and a program for mapping genes underlying complex traits.

MAPMAKER/EXP is a linkage analysis package designed to help construct primary linkage maps of markers segregating in experimental crosses. MAPMAKER/EXP performs full multipoint linkage analysis (simultaneous estimation of all recombination fractions from the primary data) for dominant, recessive, and co-dominant (e.g. RFLP-like) markers. MAPMAKER/EXP is an experimental-cross-only successor to the original MAPMAKER program.

MAPMAKER/QTL is a companion program to MAPMAKER/EXP which allows one to map genes controlling polygenic quantitative traits in F2 intercrosses and BC1 backcrosses relative to a genetic linkage map. More information on MAPMAKER/QTL can be found in the technical report (included with MAPMAKER/QTL).
