Data on Listeria monocytogenes susceptibility

Description

Data from an experiment on susceptibility to Listeria monocytogenes infection in the mouse.

Usage

data(listeria)

Format

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

Details

There are 120 F2 individuals typed at 133 markers, including 2 on the X chromosome, with one phenotype.

The phenotype is the survival time (in hours) following infection. Mice with phenotype 264 hours may be considered to have recovered from the infection. See the references below.
