The JoinMap is an advanced computer software for the calculation of genetic linkage maps in experimental populations. It provides high quality tools that allow detailed study of the experimental data and the generation of publication-ready map charts. The intuitive MS-Windows ® user interface of JoinMap invites to a better exploration of the data. For instance, you can perform several diagnostical tests, both before and after the actual map calculation, and you can remove potentially erroneous loci and individuals from the map calculations by a simple mouse-click.

Currently, MSI has only one JoinMap4.1 license and one JoinMap4.0 license. We ask that all users use the calendaring program to sign up for time on JoinMap. Please specify your name on the calendar. Please limit your JoinMap reservation to less than 24 hours at a time. If you need additional time after your 24 hour session has ended and the license is not reserved you may reserve another 24 hour session.  If you are not able to reserve time on the calendar please email to request access to the JoinMap calendars.
