Kinship testing with X-chromosomal markers: mathematical and statistical issues.

Abstract

Use of X-chromosomal markers for kinship testing is meaningful if the identical-by-descent allele sharing probabilities of at least two individuals involved in the case differ under the different hypotheses made about the composite relationships. In this situation, optimal decision making about one or the other hypothesis should be based upon the likelihood… (More)
