A SNP Based Linkage Map of the Arctic Charr (Salvelinus alpinus) Genome Provides Insights into the Diploidization Process After Whole Genome Duplication

PMCID: 5295600
PMID: 27986793
DOI: 10.1534/g3.116.038026

[…] The high quality SNPs selected for mapping, and the microsatellite marker anchors, were assessed for genetic linkage using LINKMFEX (). The SNPs were split into three categories: heterozygous male, heterozygous female, and double heterozygote (DH) SNPs where both parents were heterozygotes. The SNPs where only a single pa […]


Genomic Instability of the Sex Determining Locus in Atlantic Salmon (Salmo salar)

PMCID: 4632069
PMID: 26401030
DOI: 10.1534/g3.115.020115

[…] icrosatellite marker was genotyped in this family using an ABI 377 automated DNA sequencer. The genotype data were added to the data for family Br5 from , and linkage analysis was performed using the LINKMFEX package (). […]


Construction of a high density, high resolution genetic map and its integration with BAC based physical map in channel catfish

PMCID: 4379976
PMID: 25428894
DOI: 10.1093/dnares/dsu038

[…] segregation-type markers only (AB × AA or AB × BB for female map and AA × AB or BB × AB for male map). The markers of segregation type 1 : 2 : 1 (AB × AB) were used to build the sex-averaged map. The LINKMFEX software (version 2.4, was used to perform linkage analysis for sex-specific markers, and OneMap (R package, version 2.0) was used for linkage a […]


Comparative Genome Mapping Between Chinook Salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) and Rainbow Trout (O. mykiss) Based on Homologous Microsatellite Loci

PMCID: 3852389
PMID: 24170738
DOI: 10.1534/g3.113.008003

[…] Sex-specific maps were generated using LINKMFEX V2.3 () to accommodate significant differences in recombination rates between males and females, frequently observed in salmonids. Here, the pairwise recombination fraction between markers, θ […]


Quantitative Trait Loci (QTL) Associated with Resistance to a Monogenean Parasite (Benedenia seriolae) in Yellowtail (Seriola quinqueradiata) through Genome Wide Analysis

PLoS One
PMCID: 3672171
PMID: 23750223
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0064987
call_split See protocol

[…] Genotype scoring was performed by using LINKMFEX ver. 2.3 application package . The application can separate the allele genotypes which originate from males or females, and check the accuracy of genotypes in their progeny from parental male […]


Meiotic maps of sockeye salmon derived from massively parallel DNA sequencing

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 3563581
PMID: 23031582
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2164-13-521

[…] 12 families and in both the RAD tag data and the 5’-nuclease assays in the sequences family. The individual male and female maps from each family were combined where possible using MERGE, part of the LINKMFeX package []. […]
