Mapping quantitative trait loci (QTL) in autotetraploid species represents a timely and challenging task. Two papers published by Wu and his colleagues proposed statistical methods for QTL mapping in these evolutionarily and economically important species. In this Letter to the Editor, we present critical comments on the fundamental conceptual errors involved, from both statistical and genetic points of view.
