Random variability of map distances based on Kosambi's and Haldane's mapping functions
Languages of publication
The majority of published genetic maps are based on Kosambi distances or on Haldane distances. For a comparison of both map distance measures, their random variability is of particular interest. For the statistic ?variance', this paper presents a relationship between Kosambi distances and Haldane distances. The results suggest that Kosambi distances exhibit a smaller random variability. The theoretical results are applied to an experimental data set for molecular AFLP markers linked to the bolting gene of sugar beet (Beta vulgaris L.).
