Screening for Multiple Genes Influencing Dyslexia.
Smith, Shelley D.; And Others
Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, v3 n3-4 p285-98 Dec 1991
Examines the "sib pair" method of linkage analysis designed to locate genes influencing dyslexia, which has several advantages over the "LOD" score method. Notes that the sib pair analysis was able to detect the same linkages as the LOD method, plus a possible third region. Confirms that the sib pair method is an effective means of screening. (RS)
