An earlier program, TetraploidMap, enabled linkage analysis to be performed for autotetraploid species, with a text-based input and output. The current program, TetraploidMap for Windows, is considerably enhanced, and now goes beyond linkage analysis to perform quantitative trait locus (QTL) interval mapping, with a range of models and thresholds assessed by permutation tests. A Windows-based interface facilitates data entry and exploration. TetraploidMap for Windows is freely available from the Web site of Bioinformatics and Statistics Scotland at http://www.bioss.ac.uk/ (user-friendly software).
