GENEPROB for segregation analysis
Segregation analysis provides genotype probabilities for known individual loci, given information such as incidence of deleterious recessive conditions, DNA tests for the loci concerned, or discrete phenotypic classification associated with the known locus. This means that information is available on all individuals that are connected by pedigree with the recorded information.
Geneprob was written by Brian Kinghorn and Richard Kerr at the University of New England, including periods when BK was supported by Sygen International plc.
Geneprob is for the experienced user. Unfortunately, support in its use is not offered, but the user notes should help you. It assumes a single biallelic locus.
The core algorithm used is described in: Kerr, R.J. and Kinghorn, B.P. 1996. An efficient algorithm for segregation analysis in large populations. J. Anim. Breed. Genet. 113:457-469.
Recent upgrades are accommodation of more than one base population, as described near to the end of the user notes, and the use of phenotype=8 for individuals that are known not to be of genotype 22, which is typical for recessive lethals.
