In a previous contribution, we implemented a finite locus model (FLM) for estimating additive and dominance genetic variances via a Bayesian method and a single-site Gibbs sampler. We observed a dependency of dominance variance estimates on locus number in the analysis FLM. Here, we extended the FLM to include two-locus epistasis, and implemented the(More)
Efficient haplotyping in pedigrees is important for the fine mapping of quantitative trait locus (QTL) or complex disease genes. To reconstruct haplotypes efficiently for a large pedigree with a large number of linked loci, two algorithms based on conditional probabilities and likelihood computations are presented. The first algorithm (the conditional(More)
Elimination of genotypes or alleles for each individual or meiosis, which are inconsistent with observed genotypes, is a component of various genetic analyses of complex pedigrees. Computational efficiency of the elimination algorithm is critical in some applications such as genotype sampling via descent graph Markov chains. We present an allele elimination(More)
