QTL mapping

LOCALIZE and then IDENTIFY a locusthat regulates a trait (QTL)

Nucleotide or sequence of nucleotides with variation in the population, with different variants associated with different trait levels.

slide5

For a heritable trait...

Linkage:

localize region of the genome where a QTL that regulates the trait is likely to be harboured

Family-specific phenomenon:

Affected individuals in a family share the same

ancestral predisposing DNA segment at a given QTL

Association:

identify a QTL that regulates the trait

Population-specific phenomenon:

Affected individuals in a population share the same

ancestral predisposing DNA segment at a given QTL

slide7

DNA structure

A DNA molecule is a linear backbone of alternating sugar residues and phosphate groups

Attached to carbon atom 1’ of each sugar is a nitrogenous base: A, C, G or T

Two DNA molecules are held together in anti-parallel fashion by hydrogen bonds between bases [Watson-Crick rules]

Antiparallel double helix

A gene is a segment of DNA which is transcribed to give a protein or RNA product

Only one strand is read during gene transcription

Nucleotide: 1 phosphate group + 1 sugar + 1 base

Human Genome - summary

DNA is a linear sequence of nucleotides partitioned into 23 chromosomes

Two copies of each chromosome (2x22 autosomes + XY), from

paternal and maternal origins. During meiosis in gamete precursors,

recombination can occur between maternal and paternal homologs

Recombination fraction between loci A and B (θ)

Proportion of gametes produced that are recombinant for A and B

If A and B are very far apart: 50%R:50%NR - θ = 0.5

If A and B are very close together: <50%R - 0 ≤ θ < 0.5

Recombination fraction (θ) can be converted to genetic distance (cM)

Haldane: eg. θ=0.17, cM=20.8

Kosambi: eg. θ=0.17, cM=17.7

Parametric LOD score calculation

Overall LOD score for a given θ is the sum of all family LOD scores at θ

.1

For each marker, estimate the θ that yields highest LOD score across all families

This θ (and the LOD) will depend upon the mode of inheritance assumed

MOI determines the genotype at the trait locus Q and thus determines the

number of meiosis which are recombinant or nonrecombinant. Limited to

Mendelian diseases.

Markers with a significant parametric LOD score (>3) are said to be linked

to the trait locus with recombination fraction θ

slide23

Approach

Parametric: genotype marker locus & genotype trait locus

(latter inferred from phenotype according to a specific disease model)

Parameter of interest: θbetween marker and trait loci

Nonparametric: genotype marker locus & phenotype

If a trait locus truly regulates the expression of a phenotype, then two

relatives with similar phenotypes should have similar genotypes at a

marker in the vicinity of the trait locus, and vice-versa.

Interest: correlation between phenotypic similarity and marker genotypic

similarity

No need to specify mode of inheritance, allele frequencies, etc...
