Analysis of quantitative trait loci using hybrid pedigrees: Quantitative traits of animals

Analysis of quantitative trait loci using hybrid pedigrees: Quantitative traits of animals A method is proposed for analysis of quantitative traits in animal hybrid pedigrees formed by crosses between outbred lines differing in allele frequencies of the genes controlling the trait studied. The method is based on the decomposition of trait variances into components and uses maximization of the likelihood function for estimating model parameters, which allows the estimation of additive and dominance effects of the gene involved in trait determination and its allele frequencies, as well as determination of the chromosomal position of this gene relative to genotyped markers. To test the linkage of this gene with markers, a statistic with the noncentral x 2 distribution has been chosen. Analytical expressions for the power of this method have been derived. The method has been tested on small model hybrid pedigrees. Phenotypic values of the trait and information on marker genotypes for each individual in hybrid pedigrees are initial data for the analysis of a quantitative trait.
