In this paper, we present a least squares-based method of mapping quantitative trait loci (QTL). The regression based model as the framework basis for building the QTL map model as well as to obtain the approximate quantitative effects of each QTL. We also present results as to the performance of our echnique vis-a-vis a control variable derived from a popular software for regression based QTL mapping. An analysis is given as well as some conclusions drawn from the experiment.
