The first two QTL (quantitative-trait locus) based whole genome-wide linkage screens for DD (developmental dyslexia) susceptibility identified linkage to chromosome 18 at 18p11.2 in a set of UK and US families. This has since been replicated in several other independent studies. This thesis describes the fine mapping of the DD susceptibility QTL on chromosome 18 by genotyping and analysing a denser set of microsatellite markers. This work revealed the identification of a second QTL for DD at 18q12.2.
