Properties and power of the Drosophila Synthetic Population Resource for the routine dissection of complex traits.

ABSTRACT: The Drosophila Synthetic Population Resource (DSPR) is a newly developed multifounder advanced intercross panel consisting of >1600 recombinant inbred lines (RILs) designed for the genetic dissection of complex traits. Here, we describe the inference of the underlying mosaic founder structure for the full set of RILs from a dense set of semicodominant restriction-site-associated DNA (RAD) markers and use simulations to explore how variation in marker density and sequencing coverage affects inference. For a given sequencing effort, marker density is more important than sequence coverage per marker in terms of the amount of genetic information we can infer. We also assessed the power of the DSPR by assigning genotypes at a hidden QTL to each RIL on the basis of the inferred founder state and simulating phenotypes for different experimental designs, different genetic architectures, different sample sizes, and QTL of varying effect sizes. We found the DSPR has both high power (e.g., 84% power to detect a 5% QTL) and high mapping resolution (e.g., ∼1.5 cM for a 5% QTL).
