MOTIVATION The investigation of common disorders of polygenic inheritance using both population-based association designs and non-parametric linkage analysis within families is gaining increasing importance. We have created a program that allows for the flexible simulation of populations as a tool to investigate the properties of population-based mapping approaches. RESULTS We have created a population simulation program, POPSIM, that (i) creates a virtual representation of every individual… CONTINUE READING
