Distribution of the adjusted standardized infection intensities by Schistosoma mansoni predicted by the major gene model obtained from segregation analysis and used for linkage analysis. The frequency of allele A predisposing to high infection levels was estimated at 0.16 (70% of aa, 27% of Aa, and 3% of AA persons), and the three means (corresponding to vertical lines) were -0.43, 0.78, and 3.96 for aa, Aa, and AA persons, respectively, with a residual variance equal to 0.33.
