Original Investigations


In a family with an extremely rare PGK variant, linkage with Xg was investigated. The analysis suggested that linkage might prove measurable. The estimate of the recombination fraction was 0.07 and the 90% probability limits were 0.05–0.28. The height of the antilog curve was 19.
