Genetic linkage analysis is a statistical method that is used to associate functionality of genes to their location on chromosomes. Neighboring genes on the chromosome have a tendency to stick together when passed on to offsprings. Therefore, if some disease is often passed to offsprings along with specific marker-genes , then it can be concluded that the gene(s) which are responsible for the disease are located close on the chromosome to these markers.
