third genomewide linkage scan my thesis 1998
While I believe now mainly in UK Biobank, we found more than 2 decades earlier hits on chr 2, 6, 9, 12 (but missed chr17). Maybe our marker coverage at chr17 wasn’t good enough? Nevertheless the indentification was possible with just 415 individuals instead of 500,000 individuals nowadays (see asthma genetics timeline).
