Four major problems can affect the efficiency of methods developed to estimate relatedness between individuals from information of molecular markers: (i) some of them are dependent on the knowledge of the true allelic frequencies in the base population; (ii) they assume that all loci are unlinked and in Hardy-Weinberg and linkage equilibrium; (iii) pairwise methods can lead to incongruous assignations because they take into account only two individuals at a time; (iv) most are usually… CONTINUE READING
