TABLE 2

Predicted genotypic indicator variable and its probability distribution for the four flanking marker genotypes in double-haploid progeny

Marker classj = 2pj(1) – 1Pr(m1j, m2j)
m1j = 1, m2j = 12(1 – r1)(1 – r2)/(1 – r) – 1(1 – r)/2
m1j = 1, m2j = –12(1 – r1)r2/ r – 1r/2
m1j = –1, m2j = 12r1(1 – r2)/r – 1r/2
m1j = –1, m2j = –12r1r2/(1 – r) – 1(1 – r)/2

j = pj(1) – pj(–1) = 2pj (1) – 1, where pj(1) = Pr(xj = 1|m1j, m2j) and pj(–1) = 1 – pj(1).
