Data on hypertension

Description

Data from an experiment on hypertension in the mouse.

Usage

data(hyper)

Format

An object of class cross. See read.cross for details.

Details

There are 250 backcross individuals typed at 174 markers (actually one contains only missing values), including 4 on the X chromosome, with one phenotype.

The phenotype is the blood pressure. See the reference below. Note that, for most markers, genotypes are available on only the individuals with extreme phenotypes. At many markers, only recombinant individuals were typed.
