A web service wrapped around our previously published algorithm EXPLoRA, which exploits linkage disequilibrium (LD) to increase the power and accuracy of quantitative trait loci identification in bulk segregant analysis (BSA). EXPLoRA-web enables easy data upload and parallel processing of different parameter configurations.
