CARHTA GENE: multipopulation integrated genetic and radiation hybrid mapping

Bioinformatics. 2005 Apr 15;21(8):1703-4. doi: 10.1093/bioinformatics/bti222. Epub 2004 Dec 14.


CAR(H)(T)A GENE: is an integrated genetic and radiation hybrid (RH) mapping tool which can deal with multiple populations, including mixtures of genetic and RH data. CAR(H)(T)A GENE: performs multipoint maximum likelihood estimations with accelerated expectation-maximization algorithms for some pedigrees and has sophisticated algorithms for marker ordering. Dedicated heuristics for framework mapping are also included. CAR(H)(T)A GENE: can be used as a C++ library, through a shell command and a graphical interface. The XML output for companion tools is integrated.

Availability: The program is available free of charge from for Linux, Windows and Solaris machines (with Open Source).
