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).
