Full Name

Bayesian Quantitative Trait Locus mapping

Description

for the mapping of genetic traits from line crosses and recombinant inbred lines. It performs (1) maximum likelihood estimation of multi-gene models; (2) Bayesian estimation of multi-gene models via Laplace Approximations; and (3) interval mapping and composite interval mapping of genetic loci
