Family mapping is based on multiple segregating families and is becoming increasingly popular due to advantages over population mapping. Though much progress has been made recently, the optimum design and allocation of resources for family mapping remains unclear. Here, we addressed these issues using a simulation study, resample model averaging and cross-validation approaches. Our results show that in family mapping, the predictive power and the accuracy of QTL detection depend greatly on the population size...
