Full text not available from 'Open Access LMU'.


Olson and Wijsman (1993) have proposed a robust linkage analysis between quantitative traits and a marker locus using all relative pairs. We extend their work to estimate the recombination fraction using minimum distance estimation after robust linkage analysis requiring a single marker locus. The relevant parameters of the genetic model can also be estimated in the presence of linkage. We illustrate our approach by simulations.
