Sex-specific marker maps have become increasingly available. We have implemented the usage of sex-specific recombination frequencies in the GENEHUNTER-MODSCORE program that performs multipoint linkage analysis. Furthermore, we have devised a consistent method to choose the combinations of male and female genetic positions at which linkage scores should be calculated. Marker coordinates can be read automatically from publicly available genetic maps.
