A statistically robust variance-components approach for quantitative trait linkage analysis



A statistically robust variance-components approach for quantitative trait linkage analysis



Annals of Human Genetics 63(3): 249-262



Generalized maximum likelihood estimators (M-estimators) were used to accommodate outliers in the variance-components approach to linkage analysis developed by Amos (see Amos, C. I., American Journal of Human Genetics (1994) 54, 535-543).
