Full Name

Bayesian Analysis of Multilocus Association

Description

This is a program to select a trait-associated subset of markers among many candidates. The program is based on Bayesian modeling/estimation and it suits for both quantitative and qualitative traits. It can handle bi- and multiallelic markers as well as applied in situations where part of the marker genotypes may be missing. As an output of the program, one obtains posterior estimate of number and positions of trait-associated markers.
