Many thanks to Stéphane Dussert, Jean-François Rami and Bernard Rey for their kind and valuable help in Visual Basic commands.

Several people gave me important feed back and ideas to improve MapDisto. Here, I'd like to give special thanks to Denis Lespinasse, Issa Coulibaly, Amidou N'Diaye and Kamel Langar, for their time and patience.

Finally, I can't forget Diego González de León, who initiated me to genetic mapping theory.
