Eliminating markers and traits

Option 3 of the interactive menu has an action to eliminate a specific marker. You should be aware that the order of elimination is important. If all the markers to be eliminated are on separate chromosomes, the order is unimportant. If two markers from the same chromosome are to be eliminated, higher numbered marker should be eliminated first. The same concept holds for traits with option 4: Eliminate them in the order of highest to lowest. You will need to know the marker number and chromosome number rather than the marker name to use this option.
