Recently we developed a new statistical method for mapping quantitative trait loci (QTLs). Compared to current QTL mapping methods, our method has a number of advantages and can more accurately and efficiently locate multiple QTLs. The method is based on a procedure which combines the interval mapping with an interval test. Theoretically, this method is more complex and versatile than the current methods and allows a host of models be fitted in data to explore fully the complex information in a data set. We have now implemented the method for several commonly used experimental designs and for multiple trait analysis.
