Diversity Outbred Genotype Data




Diversity Outbred mice have been genotyped on the Mouse Universal Genotyping Array (MUGA) and the MegaMUGA. The MUGA contains 7,854 markers with a mean spacing of 329 kB. The MegaMUGA contains 77,808 markers with a mean spacing of 33 Kb.

Array Intensities and Genotypes

The directories below contain the X and Y intensities and allele calls for the MUGA and MegaMUGA.



Reconstructed Genotypes

Each file is a binary Rdata file that contains a matrix of genotype probabilities produced by the hidden Markov model in DOQTL. Dimensions are number of markers (rows) by 36 genotypes (columns).
