We analyzed the GAW11 data on alcoholism provided by the Collaborative Study on the Genetics of Alcoholism (COGA) using an extension of a new test of linkage and association for quantitative traits developed by George et al. [1999]. This method determines linkage between marker loci and quantitative traits, when allelic association is present between the trait and marker loci, by regressing the disease trait on the parental transmission of the allele of interest. We found no strong evidence of linkage to any markers. However, we found several markers suggestive of possible linkage that may deserve further investigation.
