A Laboratory Chromosome 1 LOD score PHT Office QTL mapping is a multi step procedure that involves field and lab work as well as an elaborate statistical analysis. In general, two homozygous lines that differ significantly for the trait under study are crossed. The F1 hybrid is selfed to produce a segregating F2 populations. F2 individuals will be genotyped using molecular markers. F2 will be selfed to produce F2:3 lines.  enough seed for repeated field trials. QTL mapping idea (Lynch and Walsh) By crossing two lines, linkage disequilibrium is created between loci that differ between the parental lines. This is creating associations between marker loci and linked segregating QTL. Experimental designs F2:3  in contrast to all other populations here three marker classes can be observed, therefore, dominance can be evaluated. AIL  advanced intercross lines, Random mated populations, higher resolution, but decreased power of QTL detection. RIL  homozygous genetic background, field trials can be repeated in multiple locations and years. DHL BC Marker information and phenotypic data is combined and statistical tools are used to map and characterize QTL.

The QTL mean for each marker genotype is equl to the frequency of each QTL type time the value of each QTL type, given the marker genotype. Example: uMM = u1 [(1-r)2] + u2 [2r(1-r)] +u3 [r2] We have three equations but four parameters (u1 – u4, r). QTL effects and position of the QTL are confounded. We can only solve for the QTL effects if r is fixed. F tests on the contrasts of marker classes test the following hypothesis: a > 0 d > 0 r < 0.5 Schön, 2002

Example: Plant height, umc130 X(MM) = 201cm X(Mm) = 196cm X(mm) = 191cm Case 1 Case 2 r = 0 M m Q q r = 0.2 M m Q q In single marker analysis, the only information we have are the means of each marker class. And based on this information it is possible to determine whether a marker is linked with a QTL. However, it is not possible to determine the effect of a QTL, because effect and QTL position are confounded. PHT (cm) r = 0 r = r = 0.4 Add. Effect X(QQ) X(Qq) X(qq)

10 Associations may result from at least three causes
1. The locus is the cause of the phenotype 2. The locus is in linkage disequilibrium with the cause of the phenotype Linked and highly correlated

18 QTL Analysis: Conclusions
There are a number of QTL, in analysis the largest ones easiest to detect BUT Makes detection of others difficult Models can adjust for this – detect others

19 QTL Analysis: Conclusions
QTL mapping combines qualitative linkage analysis with quantitative genetic analysis. – Association between marker genotypes and phenotypic trait values. Single marker analysis is easy to perform but QTL effect and position are confounded. This results in low power of QTL detection. Interval mapping approaches increase power of QTL detection and allow the estimation of QTL effects and position.

20 QTL Analysis: Conclusions
Estimates of QTL effects and the proportion of the genotypic variance explained by QTL are biased due to genotypic and environmental sampling. Estimates of QTL position show low precision. With large populations a large number of QTL is found for complex traits. When conducting a QTL study you may wish to use a large population size.

25 Properties of LD The basic measure of LD is: DAB = PAB - pA pB A a
( DAB = -DAb = -DaB = Dab ) A a PAB = pApB + DAB PAb = pApb - DAB PaB = papB - DAB Pab = papb + DAB B b pA pa pB pb 1 25

27 Other Measures of LD E(r2)= 1 / (1 – 4Nc)
Can divide DAB by the maximum value it can obtain: D’AB = DAB / [max(-pApB, -papb)] if DAB < 0 DAB / [min (pApb, papB)] if DAB > 0 The sampling properties of D’AB are not well understood. r2AB = D2AB pA pB pa pb E(r2)= 1 / (1 – 4Nc)

41 9. Type I and Type II Error

42 Statistics - Hypothesis Test
              Null Hypoth True Null Hypoth False Reject Null Hypothesis Type I Error α Correct Fail to Reject Null Hypothesis Type II Error β P-value = α Power = 1- β

43 Experimentwise P value
Each statistical test has a Type I error rate Test 20 independent SNPs, one will be significant at P<0.05 Bonferroni correction essentially divides the P by number of tests Often too conservative (no power), as markers are correlated Churchill and Doerge permutation help estimate experimentwise P, Permutes the entire genotype relative to the phenotypes

44 Power of approaches Sample size Heritability of trait
100 to 1000 are typical Heritability of trait H2 = 10% - 90% Depends on ability to measure trait Interactions with environment Depends on statistical properties of test
