- Sampling strategies for model free linkage analyses of quantitative traits: Implications for sib pair studies of reading and spelling disabilities to minimize the total study cost. Ziegler, A. // European Child & Adolescent Psychiatry;1999 Supplement 3, Vol. 8, pS035
Abstract One approach to establish linkage is based on allele sharing methods for sib pairs. In recent years the use of selected sib pairs to increase power for mapping quantitative traits in humans has been discussed intensively. In this paper the different basic principles for sib pair...
