LAMP 0.0.12 – Linkage & Association Modeling for Pedigrees

LAMP 0.0.12

:: DESCRIPTION

LAMP (Linkage & Association Modeling for Pedigrees) uses a maximum likelihood model to extract information on genetic linkage and association from samples of unrelated individuals, sib pairs, trios and larger pedigrees (Li et al, 2005; Li et al, 2006). It provides estimates of genetic model parameters and powerful tests of association in settings where population stratification is not a concern.

LDlink – Linkage Disequilibrium in Population group

LDlink

:: DESCRIPTION

LDlink is a suite of web-based applications designed to easily and efficiently interrogate linkage disequilibrium in population groups.

LDhap: Calculate population specific haplotype frequencies of all haplotypes observed for a list of query SNPs. Input is a list of SNP RS numbers (one per line) and a population group.

LDmatrix: Create an interactive heatmap matrix of pairwise linkage disequilibrium statistics. Input is a list of SNP RS numbers (one per line) and a population group.

LDpair: Investigate correlated alleles for a pair of SNPs in high LD. Input is two RS numbers and a population group.

LDproxy: Interactively explore proxy and putatively functional SNPs for a query SNP. Input is an RS number and a population group.

SIMLA 3.3 – SIMulation of Pedigree Data for Linkage and Association Studies

SIMLA 3.3

:: DESCRIPTION

SIMLA (SIMulation of pedigree data for Linkage and Association studies) is a SIMulation program that generates data sets of families for use in Linkage and Association studies. It allows the user flexibility in specifying marker and disease placement, locus heterogeneity, disequilibrium between markers and between markers and disease loci. Output is in the form of a LINKAGE pedigree file and is easily utilized, either directly or with minimal reformatting, as input for various genetic analysis packages.

LINKAGE – Pedigree Linkage Analysis

LINKAGE

:: DESCRIPTION

LINKAGE package is a series of programs for maximum likelihood estimation of recombination rates, calculation of lod score tables, and analysis of genetic risks. The analysis programs are divided into two groups. The first group can be used for general pedigrees with marker and disease loci. Programs in the second group are for three-generation families and codominant marker loci, and are primarily intended for the construction of genetic maps from data on reference families.
