Algorithms for a location database.

Author information

CRC Research Group in Genetic Epidemiology, University of Southampton, U.K.


The algorithms that drive the ldb location database are described. The program captures data on genetic and physical maps and combines information from different sources into a summary map. To assure portability it was developed in Fortran on a SUN SPARCStation under Unix. The algorithms, which combine rule-based seriation with a minimum deviance bootstrap, allow investigators and chromosome committees to produce a composite location in Mb that integrates partial maps. The program and manual are now available from the authors.
