This work discusses a general methodology for studying genetic associations when the trait of interest is the time to the occurrence of an event. The methods exposed combine a classic technique of survival analysis, the piecewise constant hazard models, with the idea of modelling genetic data via mixtures of distributions generated by segregation. The technique was applied in a study involving the time to onset of pneumonia and early mortality in pigs.
