You can now read about the genetic mapping software packages JoinMap and
MapQTL on the web site of CPRO-DLO:
Information is presented on the things you can do with these software
packages. You can also view the manuals to study the details, and you
can view the lists of frequently asked questions. You can read about
the computer platforms for which the software is available, how the
licensing works, what it costs, and how to order.
JoinMap is software for the calculation of genetic linkage maps. It
handles data from all kinds of full-sib families (BC, F2, RILs,
[doubled] haploids, cross-pollinator-progeny), and can combine data
from several sources into an integrated map. Besides the modules for
map calculation, the package has some diagnostical modules.
MapQTL is software for the mapping of quantitative trait loci (QTLs).
It handles data from single full-sib families of all kinds (BC, F2,
RILs, [doubled] haploids, cross-pollinator-progeny). Used techniques:
interval mapping, multiple QTL models with cofactors (MQM mapping),
nonparametric Kruskal-Wallis analysis per marker.
