Constructs genetic linkage groups and maps QTL loci. MapMaker is a program for genetic linkage analysis. 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).

New features in this release include:
1. Many many bug-fixes, feature, and user-interface improvements.
2. A sophisticated algorithm for detecting typing errors in data from experimental crosses (see Lincoln and Lander, "Systematic Detection of Errors in Genetic Linkage Data" Genomics 14: 604-610)
3. The ability to draw genetic maps (in MAPMAKER/EXP) and LOD-score plots (in MAPMAKER/QTL) as PostScript files.
4. Support for additional cross types, including F2 intercross, BC1 backcross, F3(self) intercross, and sib and self mated Recombinant Inbreds in MAPMAKER/EXP.
5. Many features for automating analysis and storing results, particularly useful with very large data sets. An outline of a database interface is provided, for sites who wish to integrate MAPMAKER into their informatics systems.
6. New "three point" and "join haplotypes" features for speeding lengthy analyses.
7. A new license agreement which allows free redistribution of MAPMAKER.Under specific conditions, you may even distribute modified versions of MAPMAKER. See the license agreement (below) for details.
