About this book

In "Quantitative Trait Loci: Methods and Protocols", a panel of highly experienced statistical geneticists demonstrate in a step-by-step fashion how to successfully analyze quantitative trait data using a variety of methods and software for the detection and fine mapping of quantitative trait loci (QTL). Writing for the nonmathematician, these experts guide the investigator from the design stage of a project onwards, providing detailed explanations of how best to proceed with each specific analysis, to find and use appropriate software, and to interpret results. Worked examples, citations to key papers, and variations in method ease the way to understanding and successful studies. Among the cutting-edge techniques presented are QTDT methods, variance components methods, and the Markov Chain Monte Carlo method for joint linkage and segregation analysis.

...for nonstatistical students, this well-designed book provides detailed explanations of how best to proceed with each specific analysis, to find and use appropriate software, and to interpret results, as advertised on its back cover. American Journal of Human Biology
