Summary "This book presents a unified discussion of the statistical concepts applied in gene mapping, first in the experimental context of crosses of inbred lines and then in outbred populations, primarily humans. The development involves elementary principles of probability and statistics, which are implemented by computational tools based on the R programming language to simulate genetic experiments and evaluate statistical analyses. The viewpoint reflects the modern approach of using anonymous DNA markers distributed throughout the genome to identify regions likely to contain genes of interest."--Jacket
