A two-step process was used to find loci contributing to the qualitative disease phenotype in the Genetic Analysis Workshop (GAW) 12 simulated data. The first step used parametric linkage analysis with a limited number of dominant and recessive models to detect linkage to chromosomal regions. Subsequently, a subset of the simulated biallelic sequence polymorphisms was used for transmission/disequilibrium tests and to build haplotypes to fine map the disease - predisposing polymorphism(s). A haplotype, strongly associated with the disease phenotype whose proximal end was within 39 base pairs of the functional allele for simulated major gene 6, was identified in the isolated population.
