    Statistical methods pioneered by human and animal geneticists use marker and pedigree information to detect quantitative trait loci within complex pedigrees. These methods, adapted to plants, promise to expand the range of data useful for identifying the genetic factors influencing plant growth, development and evolutionary responses, and to increase the relevance and cost effectiveness of quantitative trait loci mapping in applied contexts.
