Quantitative traits result from the influence of multiple genes (quantitative trait loci) and environmental factors. Detecting and mapping the individual genes underlying such 'complex' traits is a difficult task. Fortunately, populations obtained from crosses between inbred lines are relatively ideal for this - at least far more ideal than livestock and human populations - and true multigenic models are now available and have been applied successfully. In this chapter we will introduce the reader to statistical tools for segregation analysis and genetic mapping with the aid of molecular markers.
