We applied extreme sib-pair methods in two ways to the GAW10 Problem 2A data sets to detect susceptible quantitative trait loci using extremely discordant sib pairs only, and combining them with the available extremely concordant sib pairs as suggested by the authors elsewhere. Ten successive original replicates were combined into one sampling pool so as to get the necessary number of extreme sib pairs. A total of 100 replicates were used to produce 10 such data sets for both initial detection and confirmations. Strong signals were found with markers D5G15 for Q1, D8G27-28 for Q4, and D9G7-9 for Q5.
