QTL Mapping in the Evolutionary Context Pjotr Prins Laboratory of Nematology, Wageningen University and the Groningen Bioinformatics Cente, The Netherlands QTL mapping, both with genome-wide association studies (GWAS) and linkage studies in experimental populations, is a proven statistical method for disentangling complex traits. Especially now, with the deluge of data and information generated by, for example, RNA-seq, a well designed QTL experiment promises a chance of gaining enough statistical power to say something about multi-gene regulation and interaction. Here we discuss elucidating host-pathogen protein-protein interactions through linkage studies, where evidence of positive selection pressure acts as a prior to QTL analysis.
