Sammanfattning

Pinpointing causal alleles within a quantitative trait loci region is a key challenge when dissecting the genetic basis of natural variation. In yeast, homing in on culprit genes is often achieved using engineered reciprocal hemizygotes as outlined here. Based on prior information on gene–trait associations, candidate genes are identified. In haploid versions of both founder strains, a candidate gene is then deleted. Gene knockouts are independently mated to a wild-type version of the other strain, such that two diploid hybrid strains are obtained. These strains are identical with regard to the nuclear genome, except for that they are hemizygotic at the locus of interest and contain different alleles of the candidate gene. If correctly measured, a trait difference between these reciprocal hemizygotes can confidently be ascribed to allelic variation at the target locus. © 2017 Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press.
