Abstract

Several options are available to the scientific community for genetic map construction but few are simple to install and use. Available programs either lack intuitive interface or are commercial, expensive for many laboratories. We present MapDisto, a free, user-friendly and powerful program for constructing genetic maps from experimental segregating populations. MapDisto is freely available at http://mapdisto.free.fr/DL/. Current version: 1.7.5.
