• loci
  • To understand the importance of the LOD score, it helps to know that the closer two gene loci are to each other, the more likely it is that they will be inherited together. (wisegeek.org)
  • Typically, scores are calculated for multiple loci. (wisegeek.org)
  • Haplotype
  • Haplotype analysis and fine mapping yielded a peak 2-point lod score of 4.14 and indicated a 4-cM region on 1q42 that is likely to harbor an episodic ataxia gene. (biomedsearch.com)
  • We screened an additional 92 SNPs in 300-3000 European individuals and found that a single SNP in intron 86 of HERC2, rs12913832, predicted eye color significantly better (ordinal logistic regression R(2) = 0.68, association LOD = 444) than our previous best OCA2 haplotype. (edu.au)
