Haplotypes provide valuable information in the study of diseases, complex traits, population histories, and evolutionary genetics. With the dramatic increase in the number of available single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) markers, haplotype inference (haplotyping) using observed genotype data has become an important component of genetic studies in general and of statistical gene mapping in particular. Existing haplotyping methods include (1) population-based methods, (2) methods for pooled DNA…

Whole genome Identity-by-Descent determination

This research relaxation the pedigree structure to contain ungenotyped founders and present a cubic time whole genome haplotyping algorithm to minimize the number of zero-recombination haplotype blocks, which is implemented as a computer program iBDD.

Haplotype association analyses in resources of mixed structure using Monte Carlo testing

HarpMC is proposed as a valuable new tool to perform haplotype association analyses, particularly for resources of mixed structure, where the newly implemented pseudocontrol approach appears to be the best choice.

Efficient haplotyping for families

Hapi is a novel dynamic programming algorithm for haplotyping nuclear families that outperforms contemporary family-based haplotypes algorithms and infers both minimum-recombinant and maximum likelihood haplotypes, and because it applies to related individuals, the haplotypes it infers are highly accurate over large genomic distances.

A haplotype inference algorithm for trios based on deterministic sampling

Using a Tree-Based Deterministic sampling technique, an intuitive and conceptually simple phasing algorithm for trio data is presented, and the trade off between speed and accuracy achieved by the algorithm makes it a strong candidate for routine use on trio datasets.

Family-based approaches: design, imputation, analysis, and beyond

The overall results demonstrate that family data continue to provide important information in the search for trait loci, and weights that incorporate information on functional effects may be more useful than those that are based only on allele frequencies.

scHaplotyper: haplotype construction and visualization for genetic diagnosis using single cell DNA sequencing data

Next generation sequencing (NGS) of preimplantation embryos enable genetic screening for families with genetic disorders, avoiding the birth of affected babies and scHaplotyper is a convenient and accurate method to screen out embryos.

Efficient Haplotyping for Families MASSACHUSETTS INSTIMUTE by OF TECHNOLOGY

Hapi is a novel dynamic programming algorithm for haplotyping nuclear families that outperforms contemporary family-based haplotypes algorithms and infers both minimum-recombinant and maximum likelihood haplotypes, and because it applies to related individuals, the haplotypes it infers are highly accurate over large genomic distances.

Estimation and Visualization of Identity-by-Descent within Pedigrees Simplifies Interpretation of Complex Trait Analysis

This work describes how to represent patterns of inheritance for marker loci with the program IBDgraph, and provides an example of how these programs may be used to simplify interpretation of linkage analysis of complex traits in general pedigrees.

Rediscovering the value of families for psychiatric genetics research

It is contended that using whole genome sequence (WGS) in extended pedigrees provides a cost-effective strategy for psychiatric gene mapping that complements common variant approaches and WGS in unrelated individuals.

This paper will in detail explore the complex statistical interpretation of X-chromosomal STR markers, focusing on likelihood calculations, to facilitate a better understanding of the interaction between the concepts in addition to provide an understanding why good estimates of haplotype frequencies are crucial.



Haplotyping and estimation of haplotype frequencies for closely linked biallelic multilocus genetic phenotypes including nuclear family information

The approach of including nuclear family information has been tested against both the EM algorithm withoutnuclear family information and an alternative approach using GENEHUNTER for the haplotyping of the families, using the locus‐by‐locus allele counts of the sample.

An efficient computer program, HAPLORE (HAPLOtype REconstruction), is developed to identify all haplotype sets that are compatible with the observed genotypes in a pedigree for tightly linked genetic markers.

Conditional Probability Methods for Haplotyping in Pedigrees

Two algorithms based on conditional probabilities and likelihood computations are presented, which produce a single, approximately optimal haplotype configuration, with computing time increasing linearly in the number of linked loci and the pedigree size.

Accurate Haplotype Inference for Multiple Linked Single-Nucleotide Polymorphisms Using Sibship Data

A new statistical method for haplotype inference for multiple tightly linked single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), which is tailored for extensively accumulated sibship data, is proposed via an expectation-maximization (EM) algorithm without the usual assumption of linkage equilibrium among markers.

The Reliability of Haplotyping Inference in Nuclear Families: Misassignment Rates for SNPs and Microsatellites

It is pointed out that it is misleading for a computer program to yield haplotype assignments without indicating that they may have been misassigned, and the implications of these misassignments for association and linkage analysis are discussed.

Haplotype and missing data inference in nuclear families.

In applications of the previous haplotype reconstruction algorithm to 100-kb stretches, simulated in accordance to a Wright-Fisher model with typical levels of LD in humans, it is found that phase reconstruction for 160 trios with 10% missing data is highly accurate over the entire length.
