Students in both high school and university labs study the genetics of inheritance by analyzing offspring of appropriate Drosophila crosses to determine inheritance patterns, including gene linkage.
In addition, the technique reduces the number of affected individuals required to make the disease gene linkage, from dozens of families to as few as just the affected members of one family, in some cases.
The simulation using eight genes accentuates the importance of study design and prior knowledge about gene linkages in trying to find the best network to explain the data.
