Fit and exploration of multiple-QTL models
The majority of efforts for QTL mapping have used a hypothesis testing approach. For example, in single-QTL analyses (Chap. 4), one considers each genomic position, one at a time, and asks the question, “Is there a QTL here?” A primary focus is on the adjustment for the number of tests (i.e., for the scan across the genome), to control the rate of false positive declarations of linkage.
