CRI-MAP is a programme for the construction of genetic maps from gene linkage data. From the CRI-MAP Manual introduction by its author, Dr. Phil Green ...
"The main purpose of CRI-MAP is to allow rapid, largely automated construction of multilocus linkage maps (and to facilitate the attendant tasks of assessing support relative to alternative locus orders, generating LOD tables, and detecting data errors). Although originally designed to handle codominant loci (e.g. RFLPs) scored on pedigrees "without missing individuals", such as CEPH or nuclear families, it can now (with some caveats described below) be used on general pedigrees, and some disease loci."
In addition to its primary mapping function, CRI-MAP can also estimate recombination fractions & LOD scores between pairs of loci, perform multipoint likelihood calculations, and point out recombinant chromosomes in pedigrees.

For the majority of the exercises, you need to run an interactive login session with your EMBnet Node host computer while you read the tutorial with your web browser. Be certain your web browser is set-up to call a terminal emulation programme or xterm window in response to the telnet:// URL. If you need some help with these technical details, browse the HELP! page.
