**Qstats** does some basic statistics on a dataset of quantitative traits.
It plots a histogram and calculates the sample size, mean, variance
standard deviation, skewness, kurtosis, and average deviation for a
quantitative trait. The program also summarizes missing marker and trait data, as will as
determining the marker types (dominant or codominant). Finally, **Qstats** will
test whether markers are segregating at random.
It requires a molecular map that could be a random one produced by
**Rmap**, or a real one in the same format as the output of
**Rmap**. The sample could be a randomly generated one from
**Rcross** or a real one in the same format as the output of
**Rcross**.
