I found the following information on MapMaker - this was culled from a summary
on linkage software first posted by Steve Thompson and later reposted by myself.

Best of luck,

Mapmaker is available for other 'not fancy' systems as well. We have it running
under UNIX with no fancy graphics capabilities.

You may also wish to contact Dr. Alan Hillyard (alh at morgan.jax.org). He
maintains GBase, a linkage map database of the mouse, and is currently working
on databases of linkage maps for other species.

From: "Gunnell, Mark" <gunnell at fcrfv1.ncifcrf.gov>

We are currently running MapMaker version 1.9 under VMS version 5.4-2, and it
does not require anything beyond standard ascii terminals.  We obtained the
package from:

	Dr. Eric Lander
	Whitehead Institute
	9 Cambridge Center
	Cambridge, MA 02142
	mapm%mitwibr at mitvma.mit.edu
