Select Candidate QTLs

Use this to select cofactors to perform composite interval mapping (CIM).

A list of the loci positions, chromosome groupings, position within chromosome and virtual marker names are displayed. The list shows selected locus numbers that are potential QTLs. You can perform CIM using the selected potential QTLs or select alternative locus numbers. Within the list selected cofactors are indicated by a tick in the box for the locus number and will have the row coloured in grey. A previously saved set of candidate QTLs can be loaded using the Use saved candidate QTLs option.

Use saved candidate QTLs

When selected the list of candidate QTLs will be selected using the loci index numbers from the data structure name supplied in the space provided. The list of candidate QTLs should be supplied in a variate of loci index numbers where the index numbers are within the range of loci displayed in the list. By default this uses the name of the structure used on the main menu from which the dialog was opened (e.g. Single trait linkage analysis menu), but alternative candidate QTL variates can be selected by clicking on the Select button.
