We describe an extension to the TDT (transmission/disequilibrium test) which allows for more than two marker alleles and for covariates measured on the parent or offspring. We also describe a systematic genomic search where the mod score (maximized lod score) is computed for each marker under constraints on the population prevalence or penetrances of a single locus. © 1995 Wiley‐Liss, Inc.
