Mapping Software: what it can do for you

When you have a large number of markers, it would be very time consuming to assess all pairwise linkages (all the recombination frequencies between markers, 2 at a time) even using software.  Most software programs can first give you “linkage groups” – groups of markers that are likely linked, that you can then look at separately in more detail.

Some current mapping programs available are given in the Resources at the end of this section.
