    • 1999, Jurg Ott, Analysis of Human Genetic Linkage, ISBN 0801861403, page 66:
      Some computer programs furnish p-values rather than maximum lod scores.
    • 2004, T. Strachan & ‎Andrew P. Read, Human Molecular Genetics 3, ISBN 0815341849, page 406:
      Note that only recombinantion fractions between 0 and 0.5 are meaningful, and that all lod scores are zero at (theta)=0.5 (because they are then measuring the ratio of two identical probabilities, and log10(1)=0).
    • 2001, Anatoly Ruvinsky & ‎J. Sampson, The Genetics of the Dog, ISBN 0851990789, page 336:
      Markers were analysed in decreasing order of informativeness; a marker was only added to the map when it could be localized to a unique interval with a lod score of >= 3.0.
