The markers are both with actual allele sizes and allele numbers. The dataset is distributed with the GENECOUNTING version 2.0 illustrating gene counting method involving chromosome X. A total of 183 patients and 157 controls (150 males, 190 females) were available, together with five markers in MAOA (monoamine oxidase A) region with alleles 12, 9, 6, 5, 3, and the first three markers were genotyped in all individuals while the fourth and fifth were genotyped for 294 and 304 individuals.
