Current version: v3.2; Released: 10 April 2012
Version history: v1.0 released February 2007; v1.4 released June 2007; v2.0 released November 2007; v2.1 released August 2008; v2.2 released December 2008; v3.0 released September 2010; v3.1 released May 2011
What is new in v3.2?
(1) Dominant/recessive markers are considered in recombination frequency estimation, map construction and QTL mapping.
(2) A new functionality called IMP is implemented, which can be used to build the integrated map from multiple genetic linkage maps sharing common markers.
(3) A new tool called 2pointREC is implemented, which can be used to estimate the pair-wise recombination frequency in bi-parental population.
(4) Much more markers can be handled in the software. For example, map construction and QTL mapping can be done for more than 2000 markers.
(5) Figures of linkage maps are improved.
Seven fully implemented functionalities in QTL IciMapping v3.2
(1) MAP: Construction of genetic linkage maps in biparental populations
(2) BIP: Mapping of additive and digenic epistasis genes in biparental populations
(3) CSL: Mapping of additive and digenic epistasis genes with chromosome segment substitution lines
(4) MET: QTL by environment interaction in biparental populations
(5) NAM: QTL mapping in nested association mapping populations
(6) SDL: Mapping of segregation distortion loci in biparental populations
(7) IMP: Integration of multiple maps sharing common markers
Technical development of QTL IciMapping
The software is project based, where kernel modules for building linkage maps were written by C#, those for QTL mapping was written by Fortran 90/95, and the interface was written by C#. It runs on Windows XP/Vista/7, with .NET Framework 2.0(x86)/3.0/3.5.
