The linkage test we are developing is a single-locus method. | It assumes one disease gene is responsible for the disease. | It uses a genetic marker at a single locus. | We are using data at one marker locus to find this disease gene. | Single-locus methods are quick and easy to use. | You can publish your results right away. | They do not require marker data from extended families which are often difficult to find. | The false positive rate or level of the test is the same regardless of the penetrance structure of the disease gene. | Penetrance structure as in dominant or recessive penetrance. | The power of the test depends on this penetrance structure. | Our method uses this information on single-locus models to create powerful tests.
