MAP-O-MAT: internet-based linkage mapping

Bioinformatics. 2005 Feb 15;21(4):557-9. doi: 10.1093/bioinformatics/bti024. Epub 2004 Sep 16.


MAP-O-MAT is a web-based server for automated linkage mapping of human polymorphic DNA markers. MAP-O-MAT facilitates the verification of order and map distances for custom mapping sets using genotype data from the CEPH database, and from the Marshfield, SNP Consortium and Rutgers linkage maps (exclusive to the deCODE genotyping data). The CRI-MAP program is used for likelihood calculations and some mapping algorithms, and physical map positions are provided from the human genome assembly.
