The main purpose of CRI-MAP is to allow rapid, largely automated construction of multilocus linkage maps (and 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.

This section of CompGen is sponsored by Tara C. Matise, for Phil Green, the primary author of the CRI-MAP map building program.
