Typical protocol for FAST-MAP: Frequently-asked questions

What are the operating procedures that you would recommend for using
FAST-MAP regularly?

FAST-MAP is a fully-automated genotyping system. On good gel data, calling just "allele_call <study>" is sufficient. In fact, that was all we did for the demo gels that we have provided with the FAST-MAP software.

However, we may not always get perfect data in day-to-day use. It may turn out to be more effective to break down the single-step genotyping process to smaller steps so that we (the user) can ensure the quality of the partial results before we proceed further. FAST-MAP has been designed with various checkpoints for the user to interact with the data.

The following is a recommended protocol for FAST-MAP users who have to deal with real data regularly:
